We regret that foundation and access to HE students are unable to apply for maintenance loans from Student Finance to assist with living expenses, as these loans are available to undergraduate students only.

We strongly advise prospective students to consider all the costs of study including accommodation, travel, equipment, and food while undertaking their course, and have alternative means of funding such as part-time work and/or savings.

Students may find the student budget planner produced by Save the Student a useful tool to help figure out a realistic budget. You will also find lots of tips on budgeting on their website.

Students 19 and over should also ensure they have the means available to pay tuition fees. The easiest way to do this will be to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan from the Student Loans Company, who will be offering support with fee costs only. See below for further information.

With regards to living expenses, there may be some support available however, this will be discretionary and designed to assist with food, travel and/or course equipment.

Please see below our range of bursaries for 2023-24. The online application forms will go live at the start of September 2023.
