What do we do? 

The Financial Guidance Team offers information and guidance on financial matters including: 

  • student loans and grants

  • budgeting and money management
  • financial implications of changing study such as:
    • taking a break from study
    • changing mode of study
    • re-taking an academic year 
    • withdrawing from a course.

We also assess students applications for funds and short term loans including:  


  • Care Leaver/Foyer/Estranged Student Award
  • Carers Award
  • Diagnostic Assessment 
  • Disabled Students Allowance Top-Up
  • Finance Assistance Fund
