Financial support

If you are having financial difficulties you can talk to the Student Financial Support Team about the BU Financial Support Fund, call 01202 969696, or email, or visit The Base, Poole House, Talbot Campus or the Library at Bournemouth House, Lansdowne Campus. You can also visit the Financial support pages for more information.

We would also recommend that you contact SUBU Advice for independent and confidential advice. Call 01202 965779, or email, or visit them at the Student Centre, Talbot Campus or Bournemouth House, Lansdowne Campus.


If you are receiving funding from Student Finance England and you are continuing to study in 2018/19 you will need to wait until you are invited to apply online for funding. Depending on your circumstances some continuation students will be assessed for 2018/19 automatically without the need to apply. Continuation students who do not have their assessments made automatically will be contacted in March and will be asked to apply online.

However, this may be different for other awarding bodies so please ensure you check with them as soon as possible. Your future entitlement for funding may be affected if you have had more than one year of previous degree study. Call Student Finance England on 0300 100 0607.
