Most of you will be applying for a tuition loan to pay for your course and a maintenance loan to support you with the cost of living while you study.

You will need to budget for accommodation, bills and food if you are moving away from home. Student loans provide a calculator to help you predict how much maintenance loan you could be awarded:

Transport can be another cost for you to consider. You may prefer to pay upfront for a termly or yearly bus or rail pass rather than drive. Take a look at student bank accounts as some offer travel discounts as an incentive to open an account with them.

Some courses incur other costs such as materials fees, specialist equipment, field trips or enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks.

The links below are guides on how the student finance process works and how to get your application started.
