What financial support can I get as a UK student?

There are three types of main funding that could be available to UK students studying at BU; Government, BU and NHS.

Government support (England) - You can apply for a tuition fee loan, used only to pay for your course fees for university, and / or a maintenance loan, designed to help you with the cost of living while at university.  If you live in the UK but outside England, you can apply for funding from your regional awarding body:

Student Finance Wales

Student Finance Northern Ireland

Student Awards Agency Scotland



BU Financial Support - There are also potential opportunities for funding support through BU - please check the link for full details.

NHS funded support - We can also provide information about receiving funding for full and part time students on NHS courses.

In addition to mainstream Government and BU funds, it is possible to receive further support from external trusts, charities and grants. Find out where you can look up relevant funding to your situation.
