Government Loans for Teacher Training Courses
UK (Home) students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan. Please see Student Finance England for more information about Student Finance for Teacher Training Courses.

EU students who have come to the UK purely for the purposes of the Teacher Training Course (PGCE) will be eligible to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan. They will not be eligible for the Maintenance Loan. Students should apply for the Tuition Fee Loan here.

If you have any questions on the maintenance loan/tuition fee loan application process please contact Student Finance England.
