Discretionary Funds provide non-repayable assistance for students in financial difficulties in order for them to access and/or continue in education.
This is paid in addition to any other forms of student support.
Priority will be given to full-time students with childcare and/or housing costs, however all students who can provide evidence of hardship will be considered.
Applications for financial assistance from the Discretionary Fund will be accepted from students who are experiencing financial hardship, as a result of attending college, or whose financial circumstances prevent them from studying.
If you have a household income of over £26,000 you will not be eligible to apply for this fund.
