Funding is available to help you train to teach. You can apply for a:
- tuition fee loan of up to £9,250 to cover your teacher training, so you do not need to pay course fees upfront
- maintenance loan of up to £12,667 to help with living costs
You can still apply for a tuition fee and a maintenance loan if you already have a student loan, and regardless of whether you get a teaching bursary or scholarship.
You will only have to make loan repayments once you’re earning.
Use the student finance calculator on GOV.UK to find out how much funding you can get.
Check your eligibility for a scholarship or bursary
You may also be eligible for a scholarship or bursary, depending on the subject you’re training to teach.
You do not have to pay a scholarship or bursary back. You can receive this as well as any tuition fee and maintenance loans.
