The Hardship Fund

The Hardship Fund will be closing on Friday 20th July 2018 and will not re-open until early September. You must send ALL documentation supporting your application to by 23rd July 2018 or your application will not be considered.

It is essential that you arrive at University having made arrangements to secure the necessary financial support to fund you throughout your studies. However, we understand that occasionally you may experience sudden and unforeseen financial expenses and so have difficulties meeting your essential costs.



A range of financial and non-financial support is available from the University of Sussex and external Donors to make sure that you can continue your studies without added financial pressures. The University is committed to supporting you if you suffer from financial hardship, and we hope the help we can provide will enable you to make the most of your studies and time here at Sussex.
