International & European

It is essential that you make sure you have enough money to pay for your tuition fees and living expenses while you are studying in the UK, finding financial support once you have started your studies may be difficult. If you experience financial difficulties while you are studying because of changed personal or political situations, or for any other reason, it is important you talk to someone immediately. If this happens, please contact the Student Money Advice Team for advice and guidance. 

International students in particular should be wary of criminals trying to access their bank accounts and should remain vigilant and question anything that seems unusual. We would encourage any student who fears their account may have been misused to speak to their university support services, banks and the police. Please also see the British Council Guide on Creating Confidence.
