If you're planning to go to university this Autumn, now is the time to apply for funding.
There are big changes to how much it will cost to study in the UK.
From September 2012, universities in England are raising tuition fees to a maximum £9,000 a year.
Universities in Scotland, Wales and Northen Ireland are also increasing their fees to a similar level, but their home students won't be affected.
There is financial help available in the form of student loans and you don't need to pay the money upfront.
Graduates will only start to repay the money once they're earning more than £21,000 a year.
There are also grants, bursaries and scholarships to help fund studies.
Eligibility will vary, depending on the choice of course, place of study and individual financial circumstances.
If you've got a question about how to pay for your university education, you can ask our panel of experts.
