The University Hardship Fund 2020/21 is open for applications.
Students are reminded that the fund is available to both UK and international students at undergraduate and postgraduate level to support you if you are in financial hardship.
The fund includes the additional money being made available by the UK Government which was recently announced for students in financial distress.
Financial hardship can be an ongoing issue, or a one-off unexpected essential expenditure, and may include:
This is not an exhaustive list, so if you are struggling financially, whatever your circumstances, please put in an application.
Please also note that home students whose parents’ income has been affected by COVID-19 can apply to Student Finance England (SFE) to be reassessed.
Awards from the fund are normally made on a grant basis and are therefore non-repayable.
For further information and how to apply please see our webpage.
We understand that some students may require additional support accessing a suitable device and technology to study this year. We currently have the following support schemes in place:
UK students with any money or funding queries or concerns can contact Money Advice and Guidance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We can offer appointments face-to-face via Microsoft Teams or we can advise by telephone or email.
Overseas students with any money or funding queries or concerns can contact International Advice and Guidance by emailing IAGteam@liverpool.ac.uk. We can offer appointments face-to face via Microsoft Teams or by email.
