Cost of Living
Affordability has always been something which has been a key issue for students at university, but with the current cost of living crisis things are extra difficult at the moment.
At AUB we know how this can affect mental health and welfare and we are working hard to support you.
If you're worried about anything, please contact Student Services via email@example.com or pop in to see us on campus.
At AUB, we offer bursaries and additional funding through the Access and Participation Fund, as well as for eligible Foundation Students.
Part time work can help in supporting you financially whilst you're at AUB and the Careers and Employability team are here to help. Part time job opportunities are available on- and off-campus.
Marketing recruit annually for Student Ambassadors to help with on-campus events, whilst Student Services recruit Community Champions to support students in accommodation and increase student engagement with AUB services. In the local area, there are a variety of businesses who seek students to work on a part time or temporary basis.
Look out for the AUB Careers webinar on finding part time jobs and keep up to date with the latest positions on our Careers Hub.
Medical care costs
If you know you'll have to pay for a lot of NHS prescriptions, it may be cheaper to buy a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) – effectively a prescription "season ticket". Find out more information about PPCs on the NHS website.
