Student Finance & changes to studies

Student finance can be a difficult to get to grips with. We see the same issues coming up on a regular basis as so have produced leaflets to help guide you through.

Please read on if you are thinking of:

  • Changing your course
  • Taking a leave of absence
  • Repeating a year
  • Adding/removing a placement year 


  • You are having problems with getting your loans paid
  • Your household income has dropped...

Please note that the new leaflet for placements and study abroad will be updated once the government provides the figures for 19/20.
