The Student Support Fund

The Student Support Fund is a pot of money that has been provided by the University to improve student success and progression.


The Student Support Fund is now open for the 21/22 academic year. If you are facing unexpected financial difficulties, please complete the application form here.

If you are facing a delay in receiving your statutory funding, please complete our application form here. We have an expected 15 day turnaround but please note we are currently experiencing a high volume of applications and this may impact response time.

If you want support with your wellbeing, please contact Student Life at or by calling them on 02380 598 180. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
