College and university course funding

The area of student finance can be a complicated and ever-changing one.

But don't worry. Funding is available to help you complete your studies, including bursaries and loans to help with maintenance and travel costs.

We also have discretionary funding to help with unexpected hardship and childcare funding to help with childcare costs. Discretionary funding can only be applied once your course has started. Contact your campus Education Office for further details.
