Student Finances

One of the most important issues about studying for a Higher Education course is how you will be able to afford it. Here we have Steph from our Student Services Team to explain a little bit about how funding Higher Education courses works.

If you want to find out more, please visit the Student Finance England website. You’ll find all the information you need. If you have any questions about any aspect of finance, please come to one of our live information sessions on Thursday 18 November. Have a look at the Virtual Open Day Programme when it becomes live for more information about times and how to take part.
