University Hardship Fund open for applications

The University Hardship Fund 2019 is open now for student applications.

Any UK student at the University can apply to the fund if you’re 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 and are therefore non-repayable.

Application forms and accompanying guidance are available to download on our website.

The team will also be offering budgeting workshops throughout the first term, so if you think you need some help managing your money further details will be available on our website soon.

To speak to a Money Adviser regarding the Hardship Fund or for any other money queries you can attend one of our drop-in sessions which are normally held daily. Details are available on the website or you can contact the team via email at or by telephone on 0151 795 1000.
