Going to university is an investment in your future and Leeds Trinity is one of the UK’s top universities for employability. 97% of our graduates are in employment or further study 15 months after graduating (Graduate Outcomes, HESA 2022).
On this page you can find information about:
Tuition fees and loans
Three-year and two-year Undergraduate honours Degree courses and Foundation Year courses (Level 0 prior to continuing on to a linked three-year Undergraduate honours Degree course) are £9,250 per year for tuition fees in 2022-23 and 2023-24.
Two-year Foundation Degree courses, (Supporting Children and Families in Social Contexts; Supporting Early Years; Supporting Learning and Additional Needs) are £5,000 per year for tuition fees in 2022-23 and 2023-24.
Part-time tuition fees would be pro-rated accordingly to the number of credits you are studying.
You will not have to pay these fees upfront. Eligible UK Home students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of their tuition fees from the government which you repay gradually through monthly repayments.
As a full-time student, you will not start repaying your loan until the April after you leave university, and once you're earning over a set threshold. The threshold depends on which funding body your student finance is from (e.g. Student Finance England / Student Finance Northern Ireland etc.) and which year you started Higher Education. For more information visit the Repaying Your Student Loan page of the Gov.uk website.
As a UK student on a full-time course, you can apply for a package of maintenance funding from the government to help with general living costs, and additional funding if you have children and/or a disability. Part-time students from England and Wales can apply for a part-time maintenance loan.

Video: Introducing Student Finance
This video explains how student funding works for students who are eligible for full funding from Student Finance England.
Information may differ for students who are from other UK countries, are not UK nationals, who are not usually resident in England or who have previously studied in Higher Education.
Please note that how much maintenance loan a student receives depends on household income, so a maintenance loan entitlement is designed to contribute to a student’s costs, not to cover them entirely. Visit Understanding living costs while studying at university or college - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) for more information.
This video is based on 2021/22 figures.
Financial support and fees status for EU students
EU Nationals who have settled status or pre-settled status under the EUSS scheme, usually qualify for Home Fees and can usually apply for student finance, providing they meet the residency eligibility criteria (where you have been ordinarily resident prior to the start of the course).
What funding you will be eligible for will depend on your status and residency history. Visit Student finance: Eligibility - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) for more information.
EU Nationals who do not have a status through the EUSS scheme will normally be classed as International Students. Information for International Students is available on the international fees and finance page.
Bursaries and scholarships in 2022-23
Leeds Trinity offers a range of bursaries and scholarships to help support students while they study.
Students studying for an apprenticeship are not eligible for Leeds Trinity Bursaries and Scholarships.
Current students can visit the MyLTU app for information on bursaries.
You may be eligible for a Leeds Trinity Bursary.
The Leeds Trinity Bursary is a cash award of £1,000 for the second year for all eligible students with a household income of £25,000 or less.
Eligibility for the Award
UK home students with a household income of £25,000 or less (as assessed by Student Finance England or other relevant funding body) who start a full-time undergraduate honours programme in 2022-23 will receive a cash bursary of £1,000 in Level 5 (the second year, or the third year for students on a course with a foundation year) of their course.
The bursary will be administered automatically for all eligible students; you will not need to make an application for it.
Leeds Trinity recognises and rewards hard work. We give away a £1,000 payment in the first year of the course for high-achieving students starting a full-time honours undergraduate course in September 2021 or September 2022 through our Academic Achievement Award.
You'll be eligible to receive the award if you've achieved AAB at A level or the equivalent over three awards.
There is no need to apply for the award. Eligible students will be sent an email with further information at the end of October and the first payment will be made in November.
Students graduating from a Leeds Trinity two-year Foundation Degree course (Supporting Children and Families in Social Contexts; Supporting Early Years; Supporting Learning and Additional Needs) in July 2022 and progressing immediately to a top-up course at Leeds Trinity in September 2022 can benefit from a fee waiver (tuition fee reduction) of a third. Students graduating from the apprenticeship in Children, Young People and Families Manager programme in July 2022 and progressing immediately to a top-up course at Leeds Trinity in September 2022 can also benefit from a fee waiver (tuition fee reduction) of a third.

- Have a former relevant care leaver status according to the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000

Every year, Leeds Trinity offers Sanctuary Scholarships, originally set up in partnership with the Helena Kennedy Foundation through their article 26 project. The Sanctuary Scholarship provides up to five students with a tuition fee waiver for the length of their undergraduate course.
To apply, applicants must have an offer on a course at Leeds Trinity University. They must also be seeking asylum in the UK and/or they must have a status that does not allow them to access student finance from the UK government. Sponsored students entering the UK on a study visa are not eligible to apply.
If a recipient of the Sanctuary Scholarship's immigration status changes, making them able to access Student Finance, or that their immigration status no longer allows them to study for the duration of the course, then the scholarship would need to be cancelled.
The application cycle for 2022/23 has now closed. The application cycle for 2023/24 will open in January 2023.
Please contact email@example.com with any queries.

Educational grants and bursaries from charities and trusts are available for students entering higher education.
There are charities and trusts that award grants to students in higher education or those thinking of entering higher education. The sizes of the organisations vary and the amounts granted are from around £50 to £500. The eligibility criteria to apply for these awards can be very specific. The awards shouldn't be treated as a main source of funding but as additional or specific funding.
The criteria are different for each grant application. It can be based on where you live, the course you study, or a person category such as lone parents/child of a grocer. In addition to these, you will usually have:
- Access to all financial support available to you like a student loan
- Evidence of financial hardship and justification for it
- Financial vulnerability such as having a disability or being a lone parent
- A purpose for the award
The following external websites can help you find a grant:
Some companies offer students the opportunity to apply for bursaries for some postgraduate study, such as Postgraduate Solutions Ltd.
Additional Funding for Health courses
The following courses are eligible for additional funding:
The additional funding is the NHS Learner Support Fund. If you're eligible, you can get:
- a training grant of £5,000 per academic year.
- Parental support of £2,000, if you have at least one dependent child under 15 years, or under 17 years if registered with special educational needs.
- money back for excess travel and temporary accommodation costs (Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses) while you're on your practice placement.
