Money, fees and bursaries

Money can play a big part in student life, from student loans to bills, benefits and budgeting. Make sure you understand what is available and how to best use the funds you have.

It is important to know what financial support you could be entitled to, whether from Student Finance, benefits or elsewhere. 

Many students, such as parents, estranged or those with a disability, may be entitled to additional support. Make sure you are not missing out or wrongly assessed.

With careful planning you can also help your money go further. Follow our budgeting tips and budget to make your student experience as financially stress-free as possible.

If you have questions about payment of your student loan at the start of term have a look at our Student Funding Team's Frequently Asked Questions about your Student Loan.
