Extra support

We’ll try and support you by helping you access any financial support that may be available to you. If you need help to manage your money, you can make an appointment with Student Services, who can help you plan your budget or manage any debt. Email the team at

If your student loan payments are delayed, we may be able to lend you some money in the meantime. If you're in urgent need of immediate cash, AUB can provide you with a small emergency short-term loan.

Full-time English BA (Hons) students who are in receipt of the full maintenance loan may be eligible for bicycle/bus vouchers, support for educational visits and hardship payments.

If you're under 25 and have been in care for at least three months during GCSE or subsequent studies, you're eligible for a bursary. The Access and Participation team will contact you to let you know what you’re entitled to.

If you think you may be eligible but haven’t been contacted, email

An income-assessed bursary may be available for Foundation students who are living away from home for the duration of their studies. Funding may also be available to go towards travel or childcare costs, free meals, or to help those in financial difficulty.

If you're in financial hardship due to unforeseen circumstances (for example, change in economic circumstances), we may be able to provide a one-off payment to support you. You'll be asked to provide evidence of your unexpected change of circumstance and must be able to demonstrate financial need.

Bank accounts and Confirmation of Study

Setting up a bank account

If you're a UK student, you can set up a student bank account before you arrive. Depending on which bank you want to join, you’ll need either your AS12 letter from UCAS Track or your UCAS status code sent to you in an email by UCAS.

Students who applied directly and non-UK students can get a letter from Student Records – – addressed to a specific bank to confirm their attendance.

Confirmation of Study

If you're an international student you may need a Confirmation of Study letter to release funding from your sponsor. You can find this on eVision through myAUB. If you need a specific form or letter to confirm your status as a student then contact

Finding part-time work

If you’re looking to earn some extra money while you study, the AUB Futures – Careers and Enterprise team runs the Careers Hub, which includes details of local part-time jobs suitable for students. Work experience and internship opportunities are also advertised, together with graduate vacancies.

Student Ambassadors and Course Ambassadors

If you're interested in doing some part-time work at the University, apply to become a Student Ambassador or Course Ambassadors. They work with our Marketing team at Open Days, UCAS fairs and recruitment events. Students will be emailed when recruitment opens with details on how to apply.

Cost of living

We know that affordability has always a key issue for students at university, and with the current cost-of-living crisis things are extra difficult at the moment.

We’re running a number of on-campus initiatives in collaboration with the Students' Union, AUBSU, to ensure there’s plenty of helpful options available. These include the AUBSU Student Pantry, where students can find basic, non-perishable groceries and household items. Our on-campus Refectory also offers free tea and toast every morning, as well as a special £3.95 lunchtime Dish of the Day.
