Applying for student finance
If you’re progressing on to a Higher Education course next academic year, then it’s time to think about applying for student finance.
There are two main costs associated to Higher Education; tuition and living (e.g. food, accommodation, books).
You can apply for government loans for one or the other or both, depending on your circumstances.
It’s quick and easy to register online at: www.gov.uk/student-finance
Once registered, all you have to do is fill in your application. Even if you don’t have a confirmed place, you can apply using your first choice and then change the details online later if you need to.
Make sure that you send any evidence required to student finance, as well as your signed declaration form. If you have any support requirement, it’s worth checking your desired institutions rates to prepare for any extra costs.
