Fees and funding

Budgeting, banking and bills are just some of the areas where information is available to all of our students. The Student Finance and Welfare team offers accurate information about student funding and up-to-date guidance on accessing grants and bursaries so all DMU students can learn how to avoid debt and manage their money.

In 2012 the government plans to extend tuition fee loans to part-time students, see our fees and funding 2012 guide| for more information.

Tuition fees 

Part-time tuition fees for 2012/13 have been set at £5,925 per year for a four year course and £3,950 per year for a six year course.

DMU part-time bursaries

The DMU Part Time bursary has been withdrawn for 2012/13.

Access to Learning Fund

The Access to Learning Fund is a fund that is provided by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and administered by Student Finance and Welfare.

Students can apply to this when they have applied for and received all other funding that they are entitled to. The fund has been set up to contribute towards the cost of university study and living.

Students will need to be classified as being Home (UK) status. EU and International students cannot apply.

Applications to this fund are assessed on students’ income and expenditure, so supporting evidence as outlined in the forms will need to be submitted with the application.

The Disabled Students' Allowance

This is aimed at students who have extra costs due to disabilities. This allowance is means-tested and may include extra money for specialist equipment, non-medical helpers and extra travel costs. Visit our Disabled Students' Allowance pages for details of how to apply.

Additional funding

As a part-time student, you may be eligible for certain Government-funded benefits and grants to ease the cost of higher education. Students on a low income may qualify for two non-repayable grants, a course grant and or a fee grant.

Other benefits available:

  • Housing benefits: contact your local authority through Direct Gov.
  • Child tax and working tax credits: contact the Inland Revenue.
  • The Course Grant and Fee Grant: are to help with expenses like books, travel, course costs and fees. Find out more at Direct Gov.
