Advice and support
- Don't want to take out a student loan for religious reasons? Some students may feel they can't take the student loans they're entitled to because of their religious beliefs. It's very important that you've fully considered your options and consulted your religious adviser before making a decision about funding your studies. The circumstances of each student are different and the appropriate scholar will be able to advise accordingly.
- Eligibility for other sources of funding – it's also important to understand that if you decide not to take a loan, this is likely to affect your eligibility for other sources of funding. This may include applications for financial support from the university or other trusts and charities, interest free student bank accounts and benefit entitlements.
- Support at university – we want your time at university to be as stress-free as possible. Our financial support team can offer plenty of information and advice, and our Students Union Advice Centre is also on hand to offer independent advice and guidance on all things student finance. If you run into any difficulties while you're with us, we'll assist you in finding the right help for you.
Tuition fees vary depending on the course you choose – you can find individual course fees on our online prospectus under each course entry.
