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.

Bailiwick students are not entitled to apply for funding from the UK Student Loans Company.
