Financial support

Affordability has always been something that has been a key issue for students at university, but with the current cost of living crisis we know that things are extra difficult at the moment.

At Norwich, we know how this can affect mental health and wellbeing and we are working hard to support you.

Our dedicated and friendly Student Funding and Advice team is here to help and support you throughout your time at university. We can provide information to help you make informed decisions about your finances.

  • Helping to ensure that you maximise your student funding entitlement.
  • Help to resolve any complex funding issues.
  • Provide support for those who find themselves in financial hardship.
  • Budgeting and money management.

If you’re worried about anything, please contact our Student Funding and Advice team at or through OurNorwichUni.

Cost of living Support Package 2023-24

The cost-of-living crisis continues to affect many parts of society, including our students. We want to support you as much as we can, so building on our cost-of-living support package last year, we are continuing to provide help where we can and are introducing some new financial support measures to help alleviate some of the costs you might face when studying here this year.

Financial support

At Norwich, we offer bursaries to eligible students and have a range of additional funding initiatives available, such as discounted bus travel and financial support to enable students to participate in extra-curricular groups and societies, helping to enhance their engagement and enrich the student experience.

The Financial Support Fund provides non-repayable financial support to students who are experiencing unexpected financial hardship, and is available throughout the year.

Part-time work can help in supporting you financially whilst you’re at Norwich, and our Careers and Employability team are here to help. Part-time job opportunities are available on and off-campus.

Medical care costs

It may be possible for you to receive support with costs. Find out what help you could be entitled to. The Student Funding and Advice team are happy to help you with any applications you may need to make, so please contact them to discuss.

Managing your money

We understand that for some, budgeting and managing large sums of money may come quite naturally, while for others this can feel more like a challenge. There are lots of useful resources online designed to help you keep track of your income and expenditure.

If you would like some support with planning your budget for university, you can speak to our Student Funding and Advice team by emailing

Money Matters workshops

Our Student Finance and Funding team hosts sessions for students looking to get on top of their finances. During these sessions, we can:

  • cover the basics of budgeting
  • provide tools to help you track your spending
  • look at how you can reduce your expenses
  • suggest ways to maximise your income
  • give an overview of the financial help available at Norwich.

You can also access helpful budgeting advice online through sites like WHICH, Money Saving Expert and Save the Student – this even has a ‘how to save money’ section with ideas to help your budget stretch that bit further!
