  Discretionary Fund

The Discretionary fund is intended to help eligible students who are in financial difficulty to attend their programme of study.

Awards can be made to assist students with general living costs, accommodation, essential course costs and, in some circumstances, childcare costs. Discretionary Funds cannot be used to pay tuition fees.​

​​​Please note: Due to a high number of applications, please be aware that applications can take up to 21 working days to assess.  Please do not email the Student funding team to enquire about the progress of your application during this time as we are working very hard to assess each application.  You will be notified of the outcome by email. ​​​​​
