Ready to apply

Applying to the Student Support Fund

The Student Support Fund is currently closed for full assessments.


From the 21 September 2020, if you are experiencing a delay in receiving your statutory funding you can apply for Short Term support.

If you are experiencing a crisis/emergency situation, please email; providing details on your situation and a member of the Financial Support team will contact you.


If you have read the, 'Who can apply' section and believe you meet the criteria then you will need to complete an application form.

It is important that you provide as much information concerning your financial situation as possible along with any events/circumstances that may have had an impact.

You will need to provide documentation in support of your application. We use the figures recorded on the documents you submit to make our calculations so it is important that anything you submit in support of your application is up to date and accurate as this will affect the outcome of your application.

The application and supporting documentation MUST be submitted at the same time.

This is a heavily subscribed service and we will only start an assessment once we have the application AND supporting documentation.

If we do not receive both components together, we will hold the ticket open for 5 working days. If the missing component is not received in this time, then the ticket will be closed and anything already submitted will be deleted.

If you decide you still want to apply for financial support, then a new application with the correct documentation will need to be resubmitted.

If you have any questions concerning the application process or are having trouble obtaining some of the required supporting documentation then please email; prior to submitting an application.
