You could receive support to help pay for living costs while you're studying. Living costs include things like accommodation, food and travel.
Most full-time UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan from the Government. Some EU students may also be eligible. Visit Student Finance England* to get started.
The exact amount you’ll receive depends on your personal circumstances, including where you live during term-time and your household income.
The total Maintenance Loan you borrow is added to your Tuition Fee Loan, and only repaid at 9% of your earnings over £27,295 (£25,000 for new borrowers from September 2023 onwards).
If you're looking into ways to support yourself through university, ARU Temps can help you find part-time work that fits around your studies. It's a great way to gain experience and skills.
