    hello there
    i am new here so there have probably been LOTS of posts on the same topic so: sorry!^^

    i am currently studying sinology at the university of vienna and just finished my first year - yay
    this winter term i am going to beijing to study at beijing daxue for one term.
    i thought of going to england before but my final exam didnt go as planned so i went to vienna. but now i feel like i NEED to go. but i dont know how to finance it...i mean in vienna we dont pay tuition fees, and living here is about 600€ a month.
    how can i finance myself? i cannot count on the support of my father and i dont want to take out my mom - poor her
    i heard about grants and stuff but do i get them for sure? do they cover everything? help please :P

    thank you guys!!

    I don't understand, do you want to do a full degree here? If so then you're entitled to student loan to study in the UK because you're an EU citizen and you pay the same tuition fees as us which is up to £9k in england (funded by student loan) and free in wales and scotland. Can't remember if you need to pay to go to uni in N.Ireland.

    Well I'm not sure how it would work that way then. I think you'd need to contact the student loans company and ask if they'd fund it. You might get funding through an austrian scheme as well though.


    Here's a link to the SLC, look through the website or send them an email and for some advice.

    If you have lived in the eu for the last three years you can apply for a tuition fee loan. You may also be able to get an eu bursary from a university if you have a low househould income but its university dependant
