Going to University will mean you will enjoy a larger and more varied social life! FINANCIAL BENEFITS To go to University you need to pay for two things:
1) Tuition Fees - paying for the University to teach you
2)Living Expenses - paying for accommodation, rent, food and other spending money You do not need to pay for these upfront (before you go to Uni) out of your own money. The most common way to pay for these is via a Student Loan.
A Student Loan is a big amount of money that is given to you by a Student Loan company which will cover the cost of going to University.
You only need to pay this Student Loan back, later on in your life, when you have your own job and can afford it! In addition to a Student Loan, all Universities offer different types of Scholarships and Bursaries.
These are once again large amounts of money that are given to you, which you don't need to pay back! Although the cost of going to University may seem high, there are very easy and student-friendly ways of paying the cost of it! What all this means is that when you come to apply to University, money should not be a barrier or a hurdle to stop you from applying!
