Starting in September and haven’t applied for funding yet?
Don't worry, you still have time; but it’s vital that you apply early as possible. It’s important your funding is in place so you can start your academic career without any financial worries.
For full time undergraduate students there are a range of financial options available if you’re considering studying with us – including tuition fee and maintenance loans, scholarships and bursaries. The Student Loan Company’s student finance calculator is a useful tool to see how much you could receive.
Applications for part time and postgraduate funding open in late Spring. Visit student finance on the gov.uk website to find out more about the application process and eligibility criteria.
You or your parents/guardian/partner may be asked to provide evidence to support your funding application, so it’s important to check your emails and ensure this is provided promptly.
There are no age limits on eligibility for tuition fee loans and means-tested maintenance loans for undergraduate study, so mature students can apply – provided you're studying for your first degree. If you have any questions contact our Gateway team at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Costs and Fees
Get a clear picture of how much coming to University might cost and what help is available
How much you pay is determined by what course you are studying, the level (undergraduate, postgraduate) your mode of attendance (full-time or part-time) and your fee status (UK/Home, International, EU).
It is important to carefully consider the financial implications of studying at university. In additional to paying tuition fees, you will need to cover your living expenses, including accommodation, food, heating, travel, books and stationery. More information can be found at Understanding Student Living Costs.
No matter how you are being funded, whether through Student Finance (UK/Home students) or paying for it yourself, working out how much you will need to cover basic costs is a good place to start.
