University financial support

Hi! So I’m only 15, but I’m really curious about the type of financial support that might help me. I come from a low income family, and am autistic, Planning to study in either Northern Ireland or if I can afford it, England. What type of support is given to autistic people when entering uni? Planning on doing something biology based, Medicine, or Veterinary Science, and Ornithology as a Plan B.

If you live in Northern Ireland, then you need to start here:

https://www.studentfinanceni.co.uk/types-of-finance/undergraduate/full-time/


If you live in England, then there is information here:

https://www.gov.uk/get-undergraduate-student-loan


There are sections on both websites about how to apply for extra support.
