London Met's Hardship Support Fund opened on Monday 10 October 2016. It provides financial support to help you to access and remain in higher education, and can help alleviate unexpected financial hardship. Hardship fund payments can be used to help with course-related costs such as childcare costs and general living costs such as rent, food, and utility costs. Payments can also be used to meet exceptional costs, such as repairs to essential household equipment, assistance with priority debts, and other emergency situations that arise. The fund is not designed to meet the cost of tuition fees. You will need to explain any of the above in your personal statement. Fully completed application forms and documents need to be submitted to your Student Hub. Your Student Hub cannot process incomplete forms, or forms where documents are missing. It is the aim to assess applications within four weeks of submission, although this could be longer during busy periods.
