Access to learning fund
This fund is provided by government and administered by the College to meet the needs of primarily undergraduate students in financial hardship. The modest awards made by the fund do not need to be repaid.
Bridging Loans (The Principal’s Fund)
This fund is used to provide short-term emergency bridging loans. Loans are rarely made for more than £500 and you will need to know when and how you will be able to repay the loan.
If you have completed your first year of post-graduate study and experience an adverse change in financial circumstances then you may apply to the Bursaries Sub-Committee for financial assistance.
