University Hardship Fund open for applications

Applications are now open for the University Hardship Fund.

You can apply to the fund if you’re a UK student experiencing ongoing financial difficulties or if you have a one-off unexpected financial expenditure during the year that you couldn’t have foreseen.  Awards from the fund are normally made on a grant basis.

For more details on the fund you can read the University Hardship Fund Guidance on the Money Advice and Guidance webpage.

For more information about the Fund or for general money-related queries, please speak to one of our Money Advisers. You can contact the team via email or by telephone (0151 794 5863). You can also attend one of the team’s drop-in sessions, which are typically held on a daily basis.

You’ll find more information about the Fund on the University Hardship Fund webpages.
