The last year has been tough in so many ways, for so many people. And we know that for many of our students it has led to increased financial burden and stress.
Which is why, we’re pleased to announce further financial support if you have been affected by increased expenses directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This further significant funding is being provided by the University and the Office for Students.
The COVID-19 Expense Fund
This fund, which has been developed in collaboration with the Students’ Union, is available to all non-PGR* students who have personally incurred unexpected programme-related costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For full details on what you can apply for, and how to make an application, please see the full guidance on the student support website.
*PGR Students: There is an existing PGR expense fund, and PGRs are encouraged to apply to this. For further information on this and other support please see our recent post.
Living Cost Support Fund
This new fund is in addition to the Living Cost Support Fund, which is still open for applications from all students facing financial hardship, not specifically related to COVID-19. The fund can award both small grants and loans, and is open to all students regardless of study mode or nationality. Find out more on the student support pages.
