Tips on filling in the form

  • If you have a mortgage, make sure that when you are writing down your monthly outgoings you include mortgage-related insurance such as building and contents insurance.
  • Include monthly expenses for: TV licence, personal insurance, course materials and household expenses.
  • Hang on to a few of your bus or train tickets so that you can include these as evidence of travel costs. Please note that we will only consider the cheapest mode of transport.
  • Make sure you enclose photocopies of all the supporting documents you need when handing in your application (these are listed on the front page of the form).  If some are missing, or you forget to get an academic tutor or programme administrator's signature, your application will be returned to you and you will need to complete fully and resubmit. This will significantly delay processing any award.
