Students are being encouraged to get their finances in order for 2018.

The Student Loans Company (SLC) is urging students in Berwick to make it a resolution to get their student finances in shape for 2018.

Officials at the company have offered some tips for new and returning students to make the application process as smooth as possible.

Derek Ross, executive director of operations at SLC, said: “We are expecting to process almost two million applications next year so it makes sense to get your application in early.

“Even if you don’t have a confirmed place on a course you can still apply for funding when the service opens.
