Additional non-repayable support
Different groups of students will be able to access different levels of financial support, based on their needs.
Students from the following groups may be entitled to additional support either from the university they are studying at or the government:
- Students with a disability, mental health condition, long-term health condition or specific learning difficulty through the Disabled Students’ Allowance.
- Students with one or more dependent children through the Parents’ Learning Allowance and Childcare grant.
- Students with a financially dependent adult through the Adult Dependants’ grant.
- Students studying some NHS courses through the NHS bursary and extra financial help.
- Care leaver support.
If you're a care leaver starting university for the first time, you should be entitled to a one-off £2,000 Higher Education Bursary from your local authority. Most care leavers will be assessed by Student Finance as independent and eligible for the maximum maintenance loan, as well as the tuition fee loan. You should also be eligible for both bursaries and scholarships from The University of Manchester.
