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.
