Support and advice


The student funding team provides funding and budgeting advice, as well as practical help both before you start University and during your studies.

We can supply information about what funding you are entitled to, offer advice and support if you are in financial difficulty, and provide details of suitable trusts and charities.

We also administer a number of funds to help students, including Discretionary and Childcare Funds, which you may be able to apply to during your studies. The service is confidential and easily accessible through daily drop-ins and appointments.

CTP and ELCAS funding

GCU is registered with both CTP and ELCAS. This means that you can use any ELCAS or CTP funding to pay for, or put towards, the cost of your course. For more information on the funding available to you, check direct with CTP or ELCAS.

Scholarships at GCU

GCU scholarship and bursary offers (that do not need to be paid back) encourage and support ambitious students like you to continue your studies. Scholarships help to pay your fees and bursaries provide financial support for accommodation and general living costs while studying.
