Help towards equipment for universityWatch
My uni has a loans system for arts courses whereby you can loan cameras/audio equipment/iPads etc. for free for a month or so (and renew if needed/able)
Is there any grants/bursary to help towards equipment for university e.g camera and laptop for photography course
Beyond that, most people will rely on their student loan or work income to make personal purchases. For those that need additional support (disability, low income, etc.) there may be further funding and other support available. However if it's purely a matter of not being able to afford a camera or laptop, the university should still offer sufficient resources and facilities to get you through your course. That is what you're paying £9250 a year for after all. If you want your own stuff, which ultimately is more a matter of convenience than absolute necessity, it'll be a matter of finding something within budget and saving up for it I'm afraid.
An often overlooked but very important part of going to university is managing your finances. You'll get a student loan to help cover living costs, but it's going to be up to you to work out if it'll be enough, if you'll need to work and make up the difference, if you'll have money left over for something like a laptop, etc. It's very important to consider the financial implications of university.
