Managing money during your time as a student can be really challenging. Here at the SU we can give you free advice around budgeting and debt support.
University Financial support
You can also get financial support from the university through hardship funds https://www.soas.ac.uk/study/student-life/student-support/student-advice-and-wellbeing/managing-your-money/hardship-funds, bursaries and additional supports funds https://www.soas.ac.uk/study/fees-funding-and-finance/funding-your-studies/undergraduate-financial-support-soas
If you are a full time student then you won’t have to pay council tax.
If you and your household are all registered as full time students , you will be exempt from paying council tax. If you would like further information on your council tax status please come and speak to SU Advice
If you are enrolled as a part time student then you may qualify for a discount.
