2nd + 3rd Term Maintenance Payments

The 2nd Maintenance payment will be made in the first week of January and should be with students by Friday the 8 January.

The 3rd term maintenance payments will NOT be released until we have received a copy of your contributor’s 19-20 resident assessment notice. This document can be obtained from the Tax office direct but it also sent once you have submitted your income assessment form. If you have self-employment/business accounts we will also need a copy of these.

Questions Relating To Returning To University

All students with questions in relation to their studies in the UK and Overseas must contact their universities for further advice and information as each individual institution may be operating slightly differently to one another. We are unable to answer any questions on how each institution is operating.

Student Wellbeing

On the Student Wellbeing page you will find links to organisations who can offer help and guidance if you feel that you need it at any point.
