As a full-time undergraduate student you will have two main costs to meet:

  • your tuition fees
  • your living costs

The good news is that you can receive help with both as a range of financial help is available.

Tuition Fees

A Tuition Fee is what you pay to cover the cost of your course. This is now a deferred payment and so you won't have to pay a penny back until you graduate and start earning over £25,000 a year. For more information on your Tuition Fees, please visit our Student Finance pages

Living costs

Your living costs while a student will include items like accommodation, food, books, clothes and travel. You can apply for a Student Loan to help towards your living costs and depending on your family circumstances/household income, means-tested grants and bursaries are available. Visit our Student Finance pages for more information about Student Loans

The good news is that according to research the cost of living in Bangor is much lower than in many other parts of the UK. For instance Bangor is one of the top four most economical places to study in the UK according to a survey published in The Independent.

Extra help

At Bangor you can also apply for various Bangor University scholarships and bursaries which could help with your living costs. View our Scholarships and Bursaries page in Student Finance for more information

You may also be eligible, depending on your individual circumstances, for financial support including the Disabled Student's Allowance, Childcare Grant, the Adult Dependants' Grant or the Parents' Learning Allowance. Visit our Student Finance pages for more information
