Apply for funding

Two students

If you haven’t sorted out how you’re going to pay your tuition fees and living costs you need to apply for funding now.

Visit our Help with finances pages for information on:

  • How to pay
  • Paying your fees in instalments
  • Government funding
  • ARU financial support
  • Scholarships available

If you've applied for funding through Student Finance England, you should track your application to make sure it's progressing. It may be worth double checking they’ve got all the information they need to progress your application to avoid any delay in receiving your funding. If you applied online, please make sure you've signed your declaration and returned it to them.

Make sure you arrive at university prepared – have enough money to keep you going for the first few weeks. Remember that we can not accept cash to pay your fees.

If you’re receiving a maintenance loan we will confirm your registration to the Student Loan Company (SLC) when you come to collect your Student ID Card. Once this has been confirmed you should receive your first instalment within three to five working days. If you have any questions about registration or SLC confirmation please contact us at
