2.1 Funding/ Income

Students who enrol on an academic programme from 2012-13 will be responsible for their own tuition fees; a significant proportion of students will be eligible for these to be paid via the Student Loans Company (  Many students will be eligible to access fee waivers and bursaries set out in the University’s Access Agreement for 2014-15 and beyond. Further information on the University’s financial package to support students is available here.


For students who enrolled on an academic programme in or prior to 2011-12, the University of Chichester receives grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) together with tuition fees paid by individual students or via the Student Loans Company. The split of teaching income received by the University in the form of grants compared to tuition fees for the last three financial years and the forecast for the current financial year is available here.

The University has a successful track record of attracting students from neighbourhoods with a low participation in higher education.  To support this ‘Widening Participation’ recruitment work, the University receives an annual grant from HEFCE.
