All full-time and part-time undergraduate and postgraduate student finance applications are now open for 2022 to 2023.

Studying full-time undergraduate in 2022 to 2023?

It’s important you apply as early as possible. If you apply late, your money might be late too!

If you qualify for a Tuition Fee Loan only you should apply using the EU Student application form.

You don’t need a confirmed place at uni or college to apply – you can apply now and update your details later if you need to.

Continuing students should re-apply by 24 June 2022 to make sure your funding is in place for the next year of your course.

Don’t worry if you missed the new full-time undergraduate student finance deadline – there’s still time! Apply now to make sure you get some funding for the start of your course.

Find out how much you can get

Most students will have two costs to cover: tuition fees and living costs, although there is extra help available.

You can get a Tuition Fee Loan of up to £9,250 which we’ll pay directly to your uni or college.

You can also apply for a Maintenance Loan to help towards your living costs. We’ll use your household income and where you’re living during the academic year to calculate how much you can get.

Check out our student finance calculator to find out how much you could get.

It’s important to note that your Maintenance Loan might not cover all of your living costs. Read our guidance on understanding your living costs while studying at uni or college.

We offer extra support if you have children or an adult who depends on you financially, or you have a disability, a long-term health condition, mental-health condition or specific learning difficulty. Our extra support includes:
