General Information

We are able to offer an emergency loan to UK, EU and International students who are in financial difficulty, where students have no alternative source of funds or experiencing delays with their government funding or sponsor funding. 

  • Given only where all other available funds have been exhausted.
  • Subject to evidence from your bank of current balance/overdraft level on the day of your appointment. A cash machine mini statement balance slip is acceptable.
  • Help provided is only towards food and basic travel costs (£50 /week). We do not provide payment of any others expenses (eg accommodation/deposits/field trips etc). If you cannot pay your accommodation you will need to try and arrange deferment of rent payments with your University Accommodation Officer or off-campus landlord directly.
  • The value of any emergency loans outstanding and overdue may prevent subsequent loans. The total value of loans given in any academic year is also limited.
