Funding and Advice Team
Whether you are thinking about studying and want to know more about funding options, or are a current student who needs help to manage your money, we offer something for everyone.
CORONAVIRUS: In response to the nationally evolving coronavirus situation, our team are working remotely to continue to deliver our service with minimal impact to the student experience.
New and Continuing students should check out our Welcome/Welcome Back web pages, including information in relation to Money, Fees and Funding and how this might be impacted in the current climate.
The Funding and Advice Team are here to help you throughout your University journey. Whether you are thinking about studying and want to know more about funding options, or are a current student who needs help to manage your money, we offer something for everyone.
You can browse through a wealth of online information at your leisure by using our web resources. Use the links in the section above or visit www.uws.ac.uk/money-fees-funding as your starting point. From here you will find everything you need to know about funding and money while studying.
You can email the team at email@example.com with any questions you might have. We aim to respond within 5 working days but can often do so much more quickly. Please bear in mind that it might take us time to carefully research and respond to complex enquiries.
We offer a drop in service which allows students to meet with an adviser to discuss quick questions, without having to pre-book and attend an appointment. Drop ins offer a great opportunity to get quick advice or information, but are not appropriate if you would rather discuss something in a confidential setting, or something that is more in depth.
Drop ins are currently available on a virtual basis via Microsoft Teams with no need need to pre-book. Please note that they are operated on a first come, first served basis so you may need to wait your turn.
While the drop ins are via Microsoft Teams, you do not have to use your camera. We're happy to help whether we can see your face or not.
During the first 2 weeks of term we have a large number of drop in sessions available. You can find out more about these on our Welcome Week 2020 web page.
From 12th October we will have the following weekly session that you can join:
If you would like to see an Adviser one-to-one in a confidential setting, you can pre-book an appointment through The Hub. Appointments usually last 30 minutes and offer dedicated time to discuss your situation in more detail.
An Adviser may request that you book an appointment if you have emailed us or attended a drop in but they feel your situation would be best supported through one-to-one, confidential support.
In the current climate, appointments are available via telephone or virtual meetings via Microsoft Teams. If you would prefer to meet via Microsoft Teams, you do not have to use your camera. We're happy to help whether we can see your face or not.
If you have booked a telephone appointment, we will phone you at the designated time so please remember to keep your line clear. If we don't reach you, we will try a couple of times within the appointment slot so you do not need to try and contact us or The Hub - it is best to keep your line clear. If you miss us completely, you may re-book another appointment.
