Study Abroad funding and costs
Study abroad financial considerations
The most important factor you need to consider when applying for Study Abroad is the overall cost of a year abroad. To help you do this you will be asked to fill out a budgeting plan as part of your application which will help you decide which country is within your own personal means. When deciding where to apply for, you will need to consider all the costs of studying abroad – not just flights and living costs. Some countries will be more expensive than others. For example, the USA is more expensive due to the medical and insurance costs compared to France which has less expensive day to day cost of living. Please bear in mind that some countries will have many hidden costs. We recommend over-budgeting when researching as costs can vary widely and will differ depending on your personal lifestyle and the cost of living in your host country.
Study abroad scholarships
Some study abroad students may be able to apply for a scholarship to help meet the costs of studying overseas.
Applying for your student loan
You can apply for both a Maintenance Loan to help pay for living costs while studying abroad or on a work placement and a loan for the Tuition Fee.
