2016/17 Student Support Package

We have created a £1,000 per year Student Support Package for new full-time first year students to enable access to Higher Education to remain within reach for those who wish to go.

Our 2016 Student Support Package will mean that £1,000 per year of study is available to every UK undergraduate full-time student coming from a household with an income up to and including £25,000.

The £1000 package is available for each year of study full-time course with fees of £9,000. This includes our degrees with an integral Foundation Year (fees £6,000) and our undergraduate integrated Master’s degrees.

In addition there will be 200 Employability Placement Fee Waivers for UK students on a work placement in year 3 of their studies. This means that if you are eligible, you will get your tuition fee of up to £680 for the placement year paid for you by the University.

How can I use my Student Support Package?

The aim is to help students to reduce their costs where they need it most. You can use your Manchester Met Student Support Package in a combination of the following ways:

See the full list of services available on the met card

You can even use your met card balance as a fee waiver.

Choices about how you wish to use your Student Support Package will be requested during our online enrolment process starting in August 2016.

Part time Students

Part time students are entitled to a support package in the form of a fee waiver.  The amount of fee waiver you are eligible for will depend on how many credits you are enrolled on (and have been charged for) in each academic year.  Your fee waiver will be processed during your final term of the academic year.

How do I apply for the Student Support Package?

Apply online to Student Finance to be income assessed at gov.uk/student-finance.

You do not need to apply separately for the Student Support Package. Your application for Student Finance via the gov.uk/student-finance website will cover your application for your Student Support Package. You do need to ensure that you ticked the ‘share information with institution’ box to enable us to assist you.

Remember you need to apply for student finance every year of your course.
