Financial Hardship

The College is concerned that students' academic work should not be adversely affected by financial hardship. There are two main sources of funding available to students affected by unforeseen financial difficulties:

Grants from the Access to Learning Fund (government money, providing a supplementary source of financial assistance for publicly funded students suffering financial hardship).

College and University hardship funds. These are aimed primarily at those who are in financial hardship, but who are not eligible for a grant from the Access to Learning Fund. Help may be given either as a grant or a loan, or both.

Current students can refer to this page for further information on hardship funding.
