From February onwards, your son or daughter should start to apply for Student Finance. This will be paid directly to the University and is available to all new UK/EU students. Under the current arrangements, students are able to 'study now and pay later'. This means students don't have to repay the Tuition Fee Loan until they are earning a reasonable income.
UK students may also be eligible for a Maintenance Loan to help cover their living costs. Find out more about loans at gov.uk/apply-for-student-finance.
Financial support and scholarships for UK/EU students
The University also offers a generous range of scholarships and bursaries. In 2016/17, the university awarded over £1.5 million in scholarships and bursaries, supporting over 3,400 Home and EU students.

International (non-EU) students
We understand that by studying in another country students are making a big financial investment in their future. We offer a generous package of scholarships to ensure that students receive the best value for money, and helpful payment plans to get them started.
If they have a disability or learning difficulty, they should apply early for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA). It can take around 12 weeks for the allowance to be set up, but if they are planning to take up a place in September they can apply from January onwards.
