Hardship Funding and Emergency Loans

We understand that sometimes circumstances occur which you cannot plan for and that these can affect your budget and management of your cash flow. The University is able to offer financial support in the form of loans and grants for when situations out of your control cause you to experience temporary hardship.

You can apply to the Student Life Centre for Loans and the Hardship Fund. Please remember that this is not a substitute for applying for all the available funding that you are eligible for and payments are not guaranteed. You will need to provide us with enough information for the staff to be able make an assessment of the most appropriate way to assist you.


Please note: The Summer Fund is now closed. The hardship fund will re-open in the new academic year.
