Our student hardship programmes provide emergency assistance to students who find themselves in unexpected financial need and have no other sources of support available. 

The fund offers a lifeline for students struggling to meet the costs of higher education in the city. When money is tight, any unexpected additional cost can tip a student into genuine financial difficulty. Your kind gift helps students who find themselves needing immediate support due to a bereavement, illness or an increased cost in childcare or housing. For these students, something that might seem like a small setback can constitute a temporary or even permanent break in their studies – which makes graduating and pursuing a career nearly impossible.  

Your impact in action

The student support fund will allow me to continue studying on my course and will help me to pay for my living. It is a blessing for my mental health and I am so grateful. Knowing that I can reach out for financial help allows me to focus on my studies and motivates me to work even harder so that in the future I can become a donor.
