You are eligible to apply to the Student Hardship Fund if you have 'home' fee status and are enrolled on an eligible course. As the funds have a limited amount of money we aren't able to help every applicant. Some students are given priority; eg students with children, final year students. However you can still apply even if you are not a priority student. All UK applicants must have applied for, and received the first instalment of, their full student loan entitlement before applying to the UoN Support Funds.
'Home' students whose fees are paid by the NHS can apply to the Clinical Placement Fund.

You can apply at any point in the academic year. However, funds are limited and while every effort is made to ensure that they remain available throughout the year (September -July), this cannot be guaranteed. You are encouraged to plan/review your budget early in your academic year so that, wherever possible, you can anticipate any difficulties and apply early. If you are a final year student whose course ends in June you need to ensure that we receive your application form with all relevant documents at least four weeks before the end date of your course.
All other students must apply by the July closing date advised on the applicaiton form.
Many students find it difficult to manage on the statutory support they receive and often incur debts as a result, however, we cannot include all debts when assessing an application. What we can include depends if your debt is classed as a priority or non-priority. Only priority debts will be considered when assessments are carried out.
Priority debts examples: rent arrears; council tax arrears
Credit card debts and bank account overdrafts are not priority debts. Please contact the team if you need clarification.
