What does self-funded mean?
You may be considered to be a self-funded student if you are:
- funding your own studies
- getting financial help from family or friends
- receiving financial assistance direct from an external funder (excluding educational loans from a government agency)
Receiving an educational loan
If you are receiving an educational loan then you are not considered to be a self-funded student.
