As a full time student, you will have two main costs – tuition fees and living costs. You can apply for student finance to help with both of these.
A tuition fee loan is available to all students who have not studied at degree level before. It doesn’t depend on your household income, and is paid directly to the university. There are some exceptions; please refer to the Student Finance England website for more information.
There are a range of additional loans and grants available to support you while you complete your studies. Please see below for more information.
