The Student Support Fund

A team of trained advisors based in the Student Services Centre, Highfield campus are responsible for the administration of the Student Support Fund


There are a number of ways the University can support students who are struggling financially or experiencing financial hardship. Please read the information on these pages carefully to find out if you may be eligible for support, how to apply and how we deal with applications to the Student Support Fund.

Please be aware that due to the university closure for the Christmas vacation, we are unable to guarantee that any completed applications submitted after the 6 December 2018 that are subsequently awarded, will receive a payment before the closure period. We will continue to assess all applications on an individual basis and will ,in this period prioritise those students who we deem need immediate assistance. If you have any concerns please either call the Student Services Centre on, 02380 599 599 or attend our Drop-In

The fund for 18/19 will be open to applicants from the 01 October 2018 and we will be providing appointments for standard/full assessments up until the Easter break (29 March 2019). If you find yourself struggling financially after this date then please come and see us at one of our Drop-ins, or email  so we can discuss the most appropriate course of action available.
