Even though you’re not on campus now, we’re still here to keep you up to date with the latest student finance information and to provide advice about funding, part-time jobs and budgeting.
Applying for student finance
If you haven’t already – don’t forget to apply for your student finance. Make sure you submit your application as soon as possible so your funding is in place for the start of your course. If you think that your household income has changed then get in touch with your student finance provider to let them know.
New funding for NHS students
The Government is providing additional funding for healthcare students – available to both new and continuing students from September 2020. If your course started at a different time (e.g. January 2020), you will be able to apply from the start of your next academic year (e.g. January 2021).
Further information about support for Midwifery, Nursing, Operating Department Practice and Paramedic students is available on our website.
For more useful information check out the following:

Applications are now open for the Learning Support Fund. Find out more and apply for funding on their website.
