finance resources

Being away from home and managing your expenses and spending can be difficult. Click here for some advice on how to get started managing your own student budget.

Another good website for financial advice is the student section of Money Saving Expert.

If you have money worries and don't know what to do, you can make an appointment to see Joyce Lapeyre, the Money Adviser at Student Services, or email moneyadvice@st-andrews.ac.uk.

There are a number of funds you may be able to apply to for financial help. These include:

You may also be able to borrow money from the University if you have a temporary cash flow problem.

See the university’s Financial Support page for information about what financial help may be available for you.

We don't think students should be prevented from learning because of worries about money. There are a number of ways that students can get help when they need it. We hope the information on here helps you.
