Whilst there's plenty of financial support out there, we can help you access it. We're here if you need support filling in forms or to check you're getting everything you're entitled to.

Help with finances


Don't let worries about how you'll cope financially stop you fulfilling your career ambitions. There's plenty of help available, some of which you don't have to pay back.

Sorting out your finances is really important when it comes to making a success of your studies. It's not just about paying your tuition fees either, but about working out how you are going to afford to live.

The sections below will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision on how to manage your student finances.


Make sure you check out the Student Finance Calculator - a really helpful tool from the UK Government to work out how much you might be entitled to.
