Go Abroad

Fees and funding

Undertaking a Year Abroad is a fantastic opportunity both academically and personally but it can come at a price - depending on your personal lifestyle and spending habits. All students need to think in advance about their daily financial needs during their time abroad and budget accordingly. You should research some of the following questions thoroughly before you depart:

  • How will you receive money?
  • Is it possible to have a bank account abroad?
  • Can you use your home-based account overseas?
  • How will you pay bills while you are away?
  • What is your back-up plan?

Student loans

While abroad you may still apply for a tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan. We would encourage you to contact Student Finance to find out what extra funding might be available to you. When completing the necessary documentation for your funding you will need to inform Student Finance that you will be studying abroad in the forthcoming academic year.
