  Emergency funding for EU and International students

The University provides limited emergency funding for EU and international students experiencing unexpected financial difficulties.

​You can apply to the University for an emergency award if you suddenly find yourself in financial difficulty due to unforeseen problems with your funding. This could be as a result of a temporary delay in your sponsorship or the unexpected withdrawal of funding support, for example. Awards can also be made from this Fund to help students where there has been a political/social situation in their home country or where a student unexpectedly and urgently needed to return home for family reasons.


Please download the PDF application form and guidance notes​.
Ensure that you have filled out the form fully and that you supply photocopies of all the required documentation. Failure to do so could delay your application being processed please refer to the policy document​​. A list of the documents we require is on the application form.
You must make sure that the documents you supply with your application are photocopies as there is no procedure for original documents to be returned to you.
Completed forms can be submitted to the Student Funding Team at one of the drop in sessions or you can hand your application to any campus iPoint. Alternatively you can submit your application to the Visa and International Support Team.
