All UK/Home undergraduates and postgraduates studying either full-time or part-time can apply to this fund if they find themselves facing severe financial difficulty. If you are not eligible for any other childcare funding, you could apply to the Discretionary fund. The money, which is managed by the University but provided by the Government, can be applied for by filling out a form available from The Advice Hub or the Student Finance Office.
To be eligible for this award you will have to have applied for the maximum amount of Student Loan available to you (if applicable).
Please note: if you have outstanding money from the Emergency Aid Fund this will be deducted from your award from the Discretionary Fund before you receive it.
Emergency Aid Fund
Students facing immediate and urgent financial difficulty can apply for a loan from the Emergency Aid Fund through the Student Finance Office. Payments of around £100 can usually be made on the day, whilst larger sums may take a few days. There is no interest charged on these loans, however, if you do not repay the loan by the agreed date you may prevent yourself from re-registering or graduating.
If you have a specific question about funding, pop in for a chat or send us an e-mail and we’ll see what we can do for you.
