International Hardship Fund

The University has set aside limited funds to assist EU and international students in unexpected financial difficulty.

The fund allows for the provision of short-term financial support which may enable a student to complete their studies or allow the time needed for them to regain stability in their financial arrangements and continue their studies in future sessions. Applications meriting support might include occasions where a sponsor is suddenly unable to provide support, a temporary delay in a living cost allowance or where financial support is stopped because of a sudden change in political/social situation in their home country or where a student unexpectedly and urgently needed to return home for family reasons.
