The Student Finance Office

When you decide to study with us, it is important that you think about how much it will cost and what financial help you may be able to receive.

Whatever course you are studying, there are two main expenses you need to consider:

  • University Centre Somerset expenses i.e. tuition fees (if applicable), books, equipment
  • Living expenses ie. money to live on and travel costs

We offer free and impartial advice and guidance on what financial help is available to you. 

For advice or more information, please contact the Student Support Team on 01278 441233 or email

The Finance Office Counter

The Finance Office Counter is where you should come to pay your tuition fees and any other payments you may have been advised to make by your tutor, such as material fees and educational visit fees.

If you receive an invoice and have concerns over what it relates to, please call us on 01278 441226 and a member of the Finance Team will deal with your enquiry. If you owe University Centre Somerset money and are experiencing any difficulties in making payment, please contact us on the number above, please do not ignore our letter and phone calls, just come and talk to us and we will do everything we can to help.
