Different students manage their studies in different ways. We all have different challenges to manage. This page is designed to point you in the right direction for information and support with money while you study.
The Student Association are not financial advisors; so whilst we can't directly support you if you have questions we hope that the information below will help you get the answers you are looking for.
You may be able to borrow money to help pay for university or college tuition fees and to help with living costs. You might get extra money on top of this, for example if you’re on a low income, are disabled or have children.
