Not from England?

The information in this calculator is for students from England. Students from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have different student finance arrangements, so contact the relevant student finance organisations in your country.

International students won't be entitled to most student finance in the UK. Try the International Student Calculator to build a budget tailored to the needs of students from outside the UK, with extra information on visas and immigration.

Are you a parent?

Extra support is available for parents who are studying, including money to help cover childcare costs. The Student Calculator can help you to calculate these.

For more information on studying as a parent, along with case studies of real student parents, take a look at StudentParents.org
