Tuition fees for UK and EU students who commenced their studies prior to 2017/18 - will remain at £9,000 per year.
If you have deferred your 2016/17 place, you will pay the tuition fees applicable to students starting in 2017/18.
Tuition fees are reviewed and may be revised on an annual basis prior to the beginning of the academic year in question.
In all cases, so long as you are eligible to claim a tuition fee loan from the relevant authority, you will not have to pay any tuition fees upfront, as a UK or EU student, whether full-time or part-time.

This fee also includes

You don't have to pay anything upfront.
Instead, you take a loan from the government which you repay in small monthly amounts once you earn over £21,000 a year. (You don't start repaying your loan until the April after you leave university, even if you're earning over £21,000.) You can also apply for a maintenance loan to help cover your living costs, such as books, food and rent.
The amount you repay each month is based on how much you earn, not the size of your loan, and you pay the same amount each month. Get an estimate on what your loan repayments would look like with the Student Finance repayment calculator.
The money will be deducted automatically from your wages (just like tax and national insurance). You will stop making repayments if your salary drops below £21,000 - even if only for a short time - and any unpaid balance will be written off after 30 years.
'Your loan can feel like a lot of money at first, but when you start paying it back, it comes straight out of your pay slip, so you don't really notice. Plus it's about the same amount as a phone or internet bill so it's not a huge chunk out of your wages.' Adam Clark, Hospitality and management graduate
To make sure even more students can access financial support from the university, we are investing over £4 million in 2016-7 to provide a package of bursaries and financial support to students from England to make sure even more students can access financial support from the University.
'The main form of financial support will be your student loan. This is a government loan that helps cover the cost of your tuition fees. You can also get a maintenance loan to help with your living costs. How much you get is based on your family’s household income. Your university may offer extra support like scholarships.' Jack Clare, Schools and Colleges Advisor at Sheffield Hallam
