An easy one to bust! If you’re a student from the UK or EU, you do not have to pay your full course fees up front.
There are a few ways you can cover the cost of your tuition fees, but most people use a Student Loan. These are available to anyone who will be starting their first full time undergraduate course and are paid straight to your university.
Repayments on the loan don’t start until you are earning over £21,000 a year and even then it’s only 9% of any wages over that. And after 30 years, the debt is written off, regardless of how much or little you’ve paid.
