The Summer Hardship Support Fund provides financial support to help you to access and remain in higher education, and can help alleviate unexpected financial hardship. Application to the Summer Fund is only available to students who will be continuing their studies, as final year students are deemed to have completed their course, and as such are ineligible to apply. Please refer to the guidance notes for full eligibility for the Summer Fund. Due to the limited funds students will only be assessed over the summer period and fully completed application forms and documents need to be submitted to your Student Hub. Your Student Hub cannot process incomplete forms, or forms from which documents are missing. It is the aim to assess applications within four weeks of submission, although this could be longer during busy periods. Due to the limited funding available, the Summer Fund will close on Friday 27th July, or earlier if funds are exhausted.
