Due to a SiTs update, we will be unable to process any Financial Assistance applications, emergency applications, or rUK Scholarships and Bursaries on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th November 2018.


In certain circumstances, during term-time, we are able to offer students emergency assistance, generally in the form of a short-term loan up to a maximum of £200.

If you are in such a position, please download an emergency-financial-assistance form, complete it, and hand it into our offices (do not put it in our postboxes) with:

  • a mini statement showing your up-to-date bank balance and,
  • if you have it, a copy of your Letter of Award from your funding body.

Forms can also be picked up from our offices.

An emergency application must be handed in before 12 noon on a working day during term-time. You must then come back between 10 am and 12 noon the next working day to find out the decision - we need 24 hours to process an emergency application. The Cash Office is only open from 9 am - 1 pm for collection of cash.
