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.

Be a case study and receive a £10 Amazon voucher

We're looking for current students from across England to be case studies for the Student Calculator. If your case study is featured on the site, you'll get a £10 Amazon voucher as a reward for your participation.

If you're interested, just email mark.taylor@thebrightsidetrust.org with your name and where you're studying and we'll get back to you as soon as possible with the survey and some more information.
