There are also grants and loans to help with living costs, such as rent, food, books, transport and entertainment. Further information can be found on the Government website by clicking here.

Full-time students in England can apply online for financial support at www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance. Applying online as early as possible is vital to make sure your money is in place at the start of your course. It’s quick and easy and you don’t need to have a confirmed place - just use your first choice of course and change it online at a later date if you need to. View more information.
