The Money Advice and Guidance Team

Our Student Money Advice and Guidance team offers you confidential advice and support when you need it. We’ll do our best to answer your enquiries straight away.

We are not just here for times of crisis. We can help you with a range of queries including:

  • Keele University Hardship Fund
  • Emergency loans
  • Information and advice on Bursaries and Scholarships
  • Professional and Career development Loans (PCDLs)
  • Advice about alternative funding sources
  • Advice about Government funding sources
  • Money education
  • Help with budgeting
  • International student funding (including Federal Loans for US Students and Canadian loans)

We aim to advise all potential students to ensure they are getting their full entitlement in terms of government funding  including funding for all NHS funded courses. 

What we don’t do

We are not debt/welfare benefit advisers; if you have significant debt problems affecting your ability to remain in your home, for instance, we may be able to help if you apply to the Keele University Hardship Fund but you should also seek advice from A.S.K in the Students' Union or go to your nearest Citizens’ Advice Bureau.

Opening Times

Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm
