We understand it’s a difficult time with the cost of living increasing, and we’re working hard to try and reduce the financial pressures for our students where we can.
We have a range of initiatives which you can access to make sure you can take part in campus activities as much as possible.
We have a team dedicated to offering advice and support around good money management who are on hand to help you navigate money matters, from budgeting to identifying funding you may be able to access. We’ve also got a range of scholarships and bursaries which you may be eligible for.
You can enhance your CV, boost your income and gain experience and skills by working part-time around your studies. Our campus recruitment agency ARU Temps is part of ARU’s Employability Service, and provides paid temporary work to fit in and around your studies.
Full-time undergraduate students can also apply for a Maintenance Loan to help pay for living costs, while postgraduate students can apply for a Masters or Doctoral Loan. These loans are provided by the Government and you can apply for them before you start your degree course. Check our student finance pages for more information about the loans, and other sources of funding:
