Financial Hardship

At the Advice Unit, we understand that money can be tight for many students, and University may also be your first time budgeting and managing your own money. Alternatively, student parents and those with other caring responsibilities may also be juggling restricted finances. Students may experience financial hardship for a variety of reasons but it is always best to speak to someone in the first instance to look at getting things sorted. If you are worried about your student finance, come and speak to one of our trained advisors. We can give you further help and information including details of the University’s Hardship and Retention Fund, Emergency Loans and setting up payment plans.  

Interrupting or withdrawing from your studies

Interrupting or withdrawing from your studies could impact on the student finance you are receiving and any future funding. Come and speak to us either by phone, email or face-to-face if you are considering leaving your course or interrupting your studies so we can discuss your student finances with you.
