Information on funding support for students experiencing severe financial hardship.
Studying at university can bring with it financial challenges. The Exceptional Support Fund (ESF) is available to eligible students experiencing severe financial hardship who have exhausted all other means of funding. A grant of up to £3,000.00 per academic year will be available to help students who can show that there is a shortfall between their income and expenditure which they are unable to manage by their own actions.
You will be able to apply for ESF from 1 November 2017. Further information regarding the ESF including how to apply will be available in due course.
