8 July 2020 - Student Finance: Making ti easy to budget and understand

As part of Aberystwyth’s webinar series Your Guide to Higher Education: Making it from Application to Arrival, this session will initially explain the Student Funding system, and will look briefly at the difference between the system in England and Wales.

  • It will explain the elements of University life that are funded, namely the Tuition Fees and Maintenance.
  • It will explain how SFE and SFW contribute to paying for these costs through loans and grants.
  • We’ll look at Scholarships, and how to search for them, and what they can offer.
  • We’ll also look at what other financial assistance is available to students.
  • A final key topic will be budgeting for university – when do loans/grants/scholarships/bursaries arrive, and what do we pay for – the contribution and knowledge of the student ambassadors will be vital for this element.

Students will interact through a poll and in Q&A session at the end, although we’ll welcome contributions throughout the session.

Students will benefit from the session by having a better understanding of the funding system for higher education.
