The Hardship Fund supports students who are experiencing unexpected or unforeseen financial difficulties, providing funding towards the cost of accommodation, food, learning resources, digital equipment and childcare.

The funding enables students to concentrate upon their studies, without the worry of being unable to afford their basic living costs.

£500 will purchase a laptop and WiFi subscription for a student.
