Student Finance England
Thinking about going to university or college and wondering how you're going to pay for it?
Student Finance England - the student finance experts - are here to help.
Student Finance England offer a range of support to help cover tuition fees and living costs, your two main expenses while at university or college.
The range of financial support available depends on your circumstances, your course and where you study. The main types of finance are Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans (which have to be paid back) as well as grants and bursaries (which don't). The good news is most students won't have to pay anything up front.
The best way to apply for this support is online. It's quick, easy and can be done at www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance
Extra support is also available for those with special circumstances, for instance if you have children or adult dependants, a disability, mental-health condition or a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia.
Repayments only start when you have left university and earn over a set amount and what you repay will depend on what you earn, not what you owe.
So make sure you do your homework and find out about student finance - everything you need to know is available on the website www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance or follow Student Finance England on Facebook, Twitter & YouTube for regular updates.
Student Finance England is a partnership between the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Student Loans Company. We provide financial support on behalf of the UK government to English students entering higher education in the UK.
