The fund is designed to provide temporary relief for any hardship caused by an extreme circumstance and does not include funding for outstanding tuition fees for example. This is no longer a Covid relief fund.
You must carefully read the criteria and consider if you are in genuine hardship as submitting an application is not a guarantee that a payment will be made, and all applications are subject to providing relevant evidence which is assessed at the discretion of the University. This MUST include
Last 3 months UK bank statements (give details of large transactions, anything over £100)
Copy of an up to date tenancy agreement
Supporting evidence for your given reason in your application
Failure to provide evidence will result in your application being rejected.
Please note: if you have received financial support since January 2021 through a financial hardship fund from the University, an application to this fund will only be approved if your circumstances have significantly changed.
Applications to the fund are dealt with on a case-by-case basis and the University’s decision is final.
