Step 6: Apply for student finance
Applications for student finance can be completed at www.gov.uk/student-finance. If you are currently living at home with your parents, they will need to complete a separate online form supplying details about your household income, to make sure you get any financial support you may be entitled to.
The universities you’re applying to might also be offering financial support for different groups of students which you may or may not need to apply for separately, so it’s worth asking them what’s available when you visit.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Many universities offer scholarships and bursaries for students from different backgrounds, to help support you through your studies, which you can claim on top of student loans (for example, Kent and Medway Medical School offer a range of KMMS Scholarships). Scholarships and bursaries are non-repayable, which means you won’t have to pay this money back.
