About this Advice Guide
Who is this Advice Guide for?
It is for full time Home (England domiciled) and European students who are continuing an undergraduate course in 2019/20 which started between September 2012 and September 2015.
If you started your course on or after 1 August 2016 please see the Advice and Counselling Service Advice Guide Undergraduate Funding 2016 onwards starters.
If you are studying on a programme in the School of Medicine and Dentistry, you should instead read the Advice and Counselling Service Advice Guide, Funding for Medical and Dental students
If you started your course before 2012, the information in this Advice Guide is broadly applicable to you, however the, tuition fee and Student Finance amounts may be different, as well as the financial assessment income thresholds. If you started your course before 2012 and you have further questions, please contact a Welfare Adviser in the Advice and Counselling Service.
This Advice Guide describes Student Finance that is provided by the UK government. However, many students find that this does not provide enough money to cover all of their costs. Please read the Advice and Counselling Service’s Advice Guide, ‘Additional Sources of Funding’ for information on possible ways of topping up your Student Finance, to meet your costs.
You will also find it helpful to work out how much money you’ll need to spend, so you can compare this with your income. We have a budgeting spreadsheet on our website with an example of an undergraduate budget, which you can personalise, as well as money saving ideas.
Once you have read the relevant Advice Guides, if you have further questions and would like advice about your individual situation, please contact a Welfare Adviser in the Advice and Counselling Service. You can do this at any time during your programme of study, as well as before you start at QMUL.
