The Hardship Fund

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.

 *Please note: We are unable to applications from Undergraduate Finalists at this time, with exception to Undergraduate Finalists with August resits/accepted Exceptional Circumstance claims permitting August examination sits. If you have further questions, you may check your eligibility by emailing*
