Your Future Plan
Through ‘Your future plan’ we will support you to be the best graduate you can be. All of our students have a personal tutor who will offer guidance on both your academic progress and your personal and professional development.
Identifying what you want to do today, tomorrow or after graduation isn’t always easy. We will help you assess where you are and where you want to go from your first year of study to your last.
You’ll have access to a range of services including careers consultants, placement advisors, inspiring keynote speakers, personality and psychometric testing.
To get in touch, visit the Your Future Plan office at your campus and speak to one of our team, call 01242 714700 or email
Fees and funding for mature students
There are generally three main costs to consider when going to University: tuition fees; day to day living costs and costs associated with study such as books and travel.
There are government loans available to pay fees and help with living costs which are repayable once you graduate and are earning a salary over a certain amount. You might get extra money on top of this, for example if you’re on a low income are disabled or have children.
We also offer a mature students bursary of £1,000 for each year of study to full time mature students.
Find out how much loan you could get by visiting the
