Summer 2020  

If you find yourself in the position of needing financial assistance during the long vacation and you are a continuing student, please download our Summer Vacation Application Form. All applications, evidencing the impact of Covid-19 and your financial situation, will be considered.

Priority will be given to those students who have not received financial assistance so far in academic year 2019/20

You may be allocated an award to assist you with your general living costs, however assistance will not be given towards Tuition Fees. Any funds awarded will be paid directly to your UK bank account. The Student Funding Unit has a duty to protect the public funds it administers and complies with financial audit requirements.

Due to Covid-19 and the closure of the University, we can only accept applications for Financial Assistance via email.

  • Please provide your supporting documentation in the form of PDFs and clearly titled e.g. HSBC statement June or Rent Evidence etc. so that we can upload them.
