Student Emergency Support Fund
UPDATE (Monday 7 April 2020): If you are a student experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis, emergency funds may be available to help you cover the cost of essentials.
The fund has been created following the launch in late March of our emergency appeal to help our students during the crisis. While aimed initially at the University and its graduates, anyone can support the appeal, and in many different ways. Please give as generously of your time and support as you can.
