Key tasks

Student loans

If you need a student loan, there is still time to apply but you should start your application as soon as possible.

For information about eligibility and how to apply, visit Student Finance England.

Loan payments

You will get your first student loan payments after you have enrolled. This can take time, so make sure you enrol online as early as possible. Go to the enrolment centre.

Additional funding

Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for additional funding in the form of scholarships and bursaries. Some are offered by the University and others are available from UK government departments or other organisations.

Visit our scholarships and bursaries page for more information about what is available and how to apply. Use our scholarship finder tool to see what you may be eligible for.

If you have a disability, you may also be able to claim Disabled Students' Allowance.

Banking for international students

If you need to open a UK bank account, you might find the following information useful.

Once you have enrolled, you can download a bank letter to help you apply. Log in to My Student Record and select 'My enrolment and fees', then 'Letter for your bank manager'.

Our careers service can help you find work during your studies, including jobs on campus.
