Financial Support

We understand that financial matters are an important consideration for our students and that everyone’s circumstances are different. We believe that financial constraints alone should never be enough to prevent a student from studying and so we will work with you to find out what support you may be entitled to and help you to access any funding available.

If you would like to discuss any financial matters relating to your studies, contact our Student Services team at the Crawley campus.
