Tuition Fee Grant Part-time undergraduate, Northern Ireland students

5. How it's paid

Who we pay

A Tuition Fee Grant is paid directly to your university or college on your behalf. If you applied without a confirmed place, tell us if your course has changed so we can pay the correct university or college.

Grant payments will only be made to your university or college when we have received all the information we need from both you and your university or college, including their confirmation of your course intensity.

You can check your student finance account to see if we've received all the information we need.

When we pay

Your grant is paid in a single lump sum at the start of the academic year.

Your Notification of Entitlement letter

If your application is successful we'll send you a Notification of Entitlement letter. This letter explains what types student finance you're getting, how much you'll get and when to expect your payments to be made.

You should always read and keep these letters. Make sure you understand your entitlement and what this means to you.

Reassessments can affect your funding

If your circumstances change, this can result in a reassessment of your student finance so it's very important that you keep us up to date with any changes.

We'll work out your new entitlement based on the change and send an updated Notification of Entitlement letter.
