To help you to cope with unforseen circumstances there is a small hardship fund to which all students can apply. The modest awards made from the fund are based on verifiable need and are not repayable.
Bridging Loans (The Principal’s Fund)
This fund is used to provide short-term emergency bridging loans. Loans are rarely made for more than £500 and you will need to know when and how you will be able to repay the loan.
If you have completed your first year of post-graduate study and experience an adverse change in financial circumstances then you may apply to the Bursaries Sub-Committee for financial assistance.
