Finance is one of the key issues when deciding to take a higher education course. You may be feeling anxious about your finances and wondering how you will manage to pay your tuition fees, living expenses and all the costs associated with going to university.

That's why our Finance and Money Matters team in Student Services are on hand to help you with any questions or problems you may have, both before and during your time as a student here. Fees, funding, budgeting, money management - we can help you get to grips with it all.

Download our Money Matters booklet - a rundown of the advice and support available.

Course fees

All of our course fees and options are now listed under individual courses. For many of our undergraduate courses we also include information about any additional costs you will also need to budget for. We've also put together a list of FAQs for Undergraduates.

Applying for 2014/15 finance

If you are applying for support with the Student Finance Authorities, whether you are a new student or a continuing student, your course details will not automatically be inserted and you will need to enter your course information as part of the application form. This is because the University has changed the way that we promote our courses with Student Finance.

You can either search for your course by UCAS code (provided your course has one) or by course name. When you begin to type either of these into the search field, a list of options will appear; please select the one that matches the course you are studying.

Independent Advice
