The Student Support Fund

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 21/22 academic year and will re-open for the 22/23 academic year in October 2022.

If you are struggling financially during the summer vacation period, then you may wish to apply to our Summer Student Support Fund from 10th June 2022.

Short term funding

Delay in Statutory Funding

If you have yet to receive your Student Finance loan/NHS bursary, you may find yourself short of funds. We may be able to provide you with a small amount of support to tide you over.  



The University has partnered with Blackbullion, a financial skill-building website for students, to provide digital tools and learning modules that improve money management.
