It's important that you plan ahead to manage the costs of achieving your university qualification.
Your financial responsibilities
All students are charged tuition fees. You will either be paying your own fees, or a sponsoring organisation or funding body will be paying them for you. Find out more about how your tuition fees are paid.
Managing your money
Most students have to pay for their living costs by working part-time or by borrowing money. Money might be borrowed through a student loan, or a bank or building society overdraft. For more information see Managing your money.
