Let's face it, unfortunately money is a problem for most students - from the maze of filling in forms to get your student loan, through to managing the little you have to survive on when you arrive.

We don't want to paint a gloomy picture, as University life can be the best time of your life but we do want you to think before you spend. The important factor to remember is that you will have to make a little money go a long way.

Sitting down and planning your budget may not be fun but it is essential if you are to survive as a student. Make yourself aware of what extra funds you are eligible for and apply for them in good time.


Details of the support available, can be found on our 'Money, Budgeting and Legal' signposting page.
