Student finance

The F word - finance. It might seem a little bit nerve-wracking, but don’t let it put you off – it’s not as scary as you think.

Whilst there’s no denying that coming to University is a big financial commitment (think tuition fees, rent, phone bills and burgers in Happy Days Diner), there are loads of ways to help make sure you don’t break the bank. Our student finance information gives you all the information you need.


You can benefit from quick access to medical services at both the Colchester and Southend campuses. There’s also dental services on campus at Southend. International students on a course of at least six months are generally eligible for NHS treatment, but it’s best to double check before you get here.
