Who is this Advice Guide for?
This advice guide is for home and EU undergraduate students. It gives information about additional grants, scholarships or bursaries that you might be eligible for to top up your main source of funding. If you are a medical or dental student, instead read the Advice and Counselling Service’s advice guide ‘Funding for Medical and Dental Students’. If you are an international student, read the Money section of the international pages of the Advice and Counselling Service website. If you are postgraduate student, see the Advice and Counselling Service’s ‘Postgraduate Funding’ advice guide.

There is detailed information on our website to help you do this. If you need help with this, or to identify any other funding you might be eligible to apply for, to make up any shortfall you have identified in your budget, you can contact a Welfare Adviser.
