Finance After Walworth Academy

For most students, the cost of going to university is deferred – this is done by applying for student finance. You then receive loans to cover the cost of your tuition fees and living expenses. Importantly, the loans are offered at a relatively low rate of interest and you do not start to pay back the loans until you are employed and earning a good salary (currently £21,000).

Students at Ark’s sixth forms are also able to apply to the Ark University Bursary Programme. This programme gives out dozens of awards each year ranging from £30,000 over three years of study to £3,000 over one year of study.
