University Grants

The Education Department supports students choosing to study at university through a means-tested grant scheme. The amount of funding received is dependent on a number of factors, including an assessment of parental income.

The Department helps students towards the cost of tuition fees, their living costs in the form of a maintenance grant and travel costs.

More than £6 million is spent per year supporting around 800 students studying full-time higher education courses outside of the Bailiwick.

The Department produces a number of leaflets which provide advice and guidance on applying for a grant, who is eligible and current fees and allowances for different courses. These are available to download below.

Please note that fees and allowances for the academic year 2014/15 will be available on this page in the Spring.
