This time of year we often go around schools talking about applying to SUSI and the ins and outs of it. It’s not what we are doing this year, but what is important for us is to let you know there is help out there when you are applying.

One thing we always say is to just start. It can be helpful to know that sometimes in our experience the application does not often get completed in one sitting, but the main thing to know is that your application gets saved as you go along so you can start, then go back to it and you will not have lost any of your work. It often helps to think of it as a working progress!

Here is our rough guide to the Student Grant.  Feel free to download, print, share…
