You are eligible to apply to the Student Hardship Fund if you are enrolled on an eligible course – see our support funds pages for more information.

Students with 'home' fee status can apply in every academic year of their course.

International and EU students can apply in their final year of study only, unless they have experienced an unexpected change in circumstances after the start of the academic year that has impacted on their finances. One-year Masters courses are not considered to be a final year of study.  In general, students will have had to show evidence that they have sufficient funding to cover fees and living costs in order to obtain a visa.

As the funds have a limited amount of money, we are not able to help every applicant. Some students are given priority e.g. students with children, final year students. However, you can still apply even if you are not a priority student.

All UK applicants must have applied for, and received the first instalment of, their full student loan entitlement before applying to the University of Nottingham support funds.

HomeEU and international students can apply for help through the funds towards essential childcare costs.
