Support guides

Many students will struggle financially at some point during their time at university.  This might be due to having issues with their student funding application or because of learning to budget.


Debts and managing your money

If you are unable to pay something you may be able to negotiate with the company or person you owe the money to. The sooner debts are dealt with the better.
