The Student Funding Office can help with any queries you may have about your funding whilst you are a student here at the University. We can help with the following:
The Student Funding Office is based on the ground floor of Senate House. The office is open on weekdays throughout the year from 9 am - 5 pm.
If you are a full-time UK student, you should have already applied for your student support for the coming academic year from Student Finance.
You should have applied for all or some of the following:
Please note: if eligible, you will receive either the Maintenance Grant or the Special Support Grant, not both.
Please note: students from Wales are eligible for a non means-tested tuition fee grant of £5,535 from Student Finance Wales, which reduces their tuition fee liability to £3,465. A non-means tested loan is available for the remaining £3,465.
If you did not apply for your student support by the 31 May deadline, you may find that you do not receive the help you are eligible for by the beginning of term.
If you did apply by the deadline, and have not yet received your student support notification, you should contact one of the following to find out about any possible delays:
If you have not yet applied, you are not too late, but you are advised to do so immediately. If your student loan for living costs (for UK students) or funding is delayed, you may be eligible for a short-term loan, up to a maximum of £200. Please contact the Student Funding Office team once you are registered for further information.
Home UK students, particularly those in receipt of a full maintenance or special support grant, should visit our funding pages for more information of fee waivers and bursaries available from the University of Bristol.
EU students will not be eligible to receive a maintenance grant from the Government, however they are eligible for fee waiver support from the University of Bristol, provided they have been financially assessed by the Student Loans Company's EU team and have a household income of £25k or less. Home EU students should visit our funding pages for more information.
Students normally resident in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man pay tuition fees at the rate negotiated between the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Islands' governments.
Please visit the tuition fees page on the Academic Registry website.
