How do I apply for student finance? When does it open? How much will I get? Will I need a part-time job? Is there extra support available?

These are all common (and completely normal) questions students ask when starting to think about paying for university and managing their money whilst they’re there.

In this webinar, you’ll have the chance to hear from Chris Hakes, a Higher Education Adviser at the University of East Anglia (UEA), as well as Ben Rutter, Funding Information Services Account Manager at the Students Loans Company. They will explain everything you need to know about the funding packages available for students starting their studies in 2023, as well as tips and guidance on how students can learn to budget and make the most of their money at university.

The session will cover the following areas, with plenty of time for you to ask questions at the end:

  • The different types of loan that are available
  • How to apply
  • How the repayment process works
  • What extra financial support is on offer at UEA
  • Tips on budgeting from current students


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) who have applied, or are considering applying, to study at university. Advisers, teachers and parents are also very welcome to join us.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider questions they have about student finance and scholarships.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
