Frequently Asked Questions
It's helpful if you have to hand any paperwork, information or evidence in relation to your query. If your query is Student Finance-related, please bring/have your online log-in details.

Face-to-face appointments take place on Level 0, Student Central and you should check in at the MyBradford desk.
That’s no problem - you can cancel or reschedule your appointment online if necessary. Just go to the confirmation email you received and follow the instructions.
We encourage you to make your own notes during appointments. Any notes your Student Life Adviser makes during your appointment are only made with your consent and are stored confidentially. We keep a confidential record of your visit on our client database. This helps us to keep in touch with you and is limited to the nature of your enquiry.
A budget can help you save money and work out payment plans for debts.
After you’ve completed a budget, one of our advisers can use this to help you to increase your income and save money.
