The costs you are likely to have while at university are accommodation costs, general living costs and tuition fees.
We provide guidance on the living expenses you may have while you study and the financial help you can expect from government loans and grants.
Other financial help may be available from a range of bursaries, scholarships, and awards.
The main sources of Government funding for UK students are the tuition fee loan for course costs and the maintenance loan to help cover living expenses. More specialised funding can be available, such as the Childcare Grant, Disabled Students' Allowance and NHS funding.
Government financial support will normally be available for the length of the course plus one extra year. Any years of previous study in higher education will be subtracted from the support for your current course. However, this is can be a complex area of funding and you are advised to contact the Student Funding Office for advice on how your funding may be affected.
International students must have enough funds in place to cover the cost of tuition fees and living expenses before arriving to study at university.
There are a range of University scholarships and awards available for international students.
