Money and financial advice
About the Advice, Information and Funding Service
The Advice, Information and Funding Service (AIFS) provides confidential, face-to-face drop-in sessions and appointments on a range of issues from advice on undergraduate and postgraduate funding for Home and EU students, support with making your funding application to Student Finance England or its non-UK team, and advice and help with resolving any difficulties you might have in the process with Student Finance England. It also provides funding advice if you are considering changing, suspending, or leaving your course, and support in liaising with other University teams, for example, the Student Fees Office and the Income Section. Please check out our film for more information about the support we offer.
During the summer vacation student advisers are available for appointments at various times Monday to Friday, at Holloway Road Learning Centre and Aldgate, and on Wednesdays at the Moorgate Hub. To book an appointment please contact your Student Hub or Student Services (Aldgate: 020 7320 2370; Holloway: 020 7133 2094).
Our student advisers provide specialist funding advice for undergraduate and postgraduate Home and EU students. We are available for drop-ins or appointments at the following locations and times during term time.
Please note, during the Easter vacation the service will offer appointments only, which may be booked via your Student Hub.
Drop-ins (term-time only)
Aldgate Hub - 9:30 until 12:30 Monday to Friday
Holloway Hub - 9:30 until 12:30 Monday to Friday
Moorgate Hub - 9:30 until 12:30 Tuesday and Wednesday only
Drop-ins are a first come first seen service, with each drop-in lasting a maximum of 20 minutes. As advisers can only see a certain number of students during each drop-in session, it is advisable to arrive as early as possible. If you arrive late or the maximum number of students has been seen, you will be referred to the next drop-in session, or invited to book an appointment.
During term time student advisers are also available for afternoon appointments. These are based in the Student Services centres at Aldgate (Calcutta House) and Holloway (Learning Centre).
To book an appointment please contact your Student Hub or the Student Services reception - Aldgate: 020 7320 2370; Holloway: 020 7133 2094.
During the vacation period, student advisers are available for appointments only, Monday to Friday. Please see the appointments section (above) on how to book.
