Higher education students have to meet a number of expenses, including tuition fees and living costs. There is financial help available - probably more than you think - from your chosen university, from the government, or from other sources such as part-time work. You can find out more at the Government website.

We at Aimhigher think the life-long benefits of going to university, combined with the affordable loan repayment system, make the answer "Yes!". But don't take our word for it.
