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 has now closed for the 20/21 academic year. We will re-open the fund in the 21/22 academic year.

If an event has caused immediate, significant financial hardship and has left you in imminent danger of a serious consequence, please either attend an online appointment to discuss your situation in more detail or complete the short-term application form here. Alternatively, you can email  with any queries and we will assist you.

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.
