They are opportunities for you to book a face-to-face meeting with a member of the Financial Support team through Microsoft Teams for help and advice about student funding, hardship funds and general funding queries.

In your first year you must have completed on-line registration and completed the University’s attendance confirmation process. The first payment should then be in your bank account (as advised to Student Finance) within three-five working days.

Second and subsequent year students should complete on-line registration and the first instalment should be in the advised bank account within a couple of days of the start of term.

If this does not happen please check that you have received a Notification Letter from Student Finance. If you have you should visit a Student Service Centre for help and advice about registration. If you have not yet received your letters then please wait until received before contacting staff for assistance, unless you are struggling financially (in which case please use the Enquire and Submit link on this portal to contact the Funding and Financial Support team).

For further information, please see visit our registration webpages and student funding webpages.



The University has to confirm your registration to the SLC to release your Masters/Doctoral Loan. However, due to the data checking that is required by the SLC, this confirmation can take up to three weeks from when you are fully registered with us for your course and from the start date of your course/year.

Payment will not be made until after the start date the SLC have recorded for your course/year.

For more information please visit our funding  postgraduates webpage
