Student Support - How much student support will I get?

Students in universities and colleges of higher education may be able to get help with tuition fees, the costs of their course and their living expenses by getting student support in the form of student grants (including bursaries) or loans from the Government.

How much student support will I get?

The amount of help you can get depends on where you are studying, where you are living whilst studying, the fees charged by your university or college and your family circumstances.

Some students could get extra financial help, for example:

•    single parents
•    student parents if they have a partner who is also a student
•    students with certain disabilities
