Student support

Course providers can offer support in many ways. 
 
As well as financial help, you may also be able to get study support (for example, if you have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, or if you need to brush up on some academic skills), or help to manage your studies around other priorities (such as caring responsibilities), or even to help with personal circumstances (e.g. if you are going to uni without the support of your parents).
 
Additionally, if you are worried about the social aspects of university, getting accommodation, or would like help to manage your mental health and wellbeing, there are lots of options available.
