Introducing...the Resource Finder
Access our wide range of student finance resources in seconds with our new and improved search function.

We are constantly looking at ways to help you deliver the best information and advice about student finance to students and their parents. Your brand new eMag is just one of the avenues we’ve explored this year. And now, to help you find resources quickly and efficiently on the practitioner site, we’re working on improving our search tool by introducing the Resource Finder.

Once it’s launched you’ll be able to access the information you want from our wide range of films, factsheets, main guides and quick guides in seconds.

Every year we produce a range of resources for you to help students and their parents so they know what they can get and how to get it. In the past year, we’ve been busy expanding our range of online and printed guidance and YouTube films, and we’ve introduced our online, interactive quick start guides. The quick start guides allow students and parents to find out the different types of student finance available – including how to apply and repay – all in one central place. The design mimics an ‘app’, making it user friendly and easy to share on mobile devices and guides users through to further content on Gov.uk and our dedicated student finance zone on The Student Room at appropriate points.

While we hope that you find all our material useful, we know that if you’re in a hurry you don’t want to spend a lot of time navigating all the sections to get what you want. And, if you’re looking for more than one type of resource, the process can become time consuming.

So, we’re developing the Resource Finder to make the search process easier, showing you relevant resources quickly and in three simple steps. By answering a few basic questions, your results will be displayed on one page.

The resource finder will be launching soon so keep checking our website for updates!
