Finance and Funding Support
University can be expensive. You have tuition fees to pay, living costs to think about and you’d also like to squeeze a social life out of it too.
But help is at hand to cover all these costs that you might not have had to think about before.
First stop is student finance. You can apply for student loans and possibly grants or bursaries with your student finance service like Student Finance Wales or Student Finance England. These loans can be used to pay your tuitions fees and help towards your living costs such as accommodation, food and travel.
To help a bit more with your finances, you could also look for part-time work to fit around your studies. Lots of businesses employ students on a temporary basis which could be good if you're planning of heading home for the summer but still want to earn a bit of extra cash during term time. Keep an eye on job sites online or take a look at our online careers support gateway WGUconnect will help you find full-time and part-time employment and when the time is right, graduate vacancies.
If money is still a worry for you, our Student Funding and Money Advice team are always here to give advice about any financial worries you might have.
They can also do a ‘financial health check’ to make sure you’re receiving all the funding that you’re entitled to.
