What is student support?

Students in universities and colleges of higher education may be able to get help with tuition fees, the costs of their course and their living expenses by getting student support in the form of student grants (including bursaries) or loans from the Government.

A grant does not have to be paid back. A student loan has to be paid back later when you start earning over a certain amount.

Applies to: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland

Taxable: No
