We know that sometimes things can be difficult financially, and at Roehampton we are committed to providing avenues to help our students in times of need. Our Student Hardship Fund and Emergency Loans provide financial assistance to help our students through periods of financial difficulty and unexpected hardship.
As a Roehampton student, you will be able to apply once per academic year, and funding includes Emergency loans (repayable) and Student Hardship Fund (non-repayable loans).
Please note these are not scholarships or bursaries, for more information about these click here.
The Hardship Fund is a limited fund at the University of Roehampton and there is no guarantee an award will be made. This is a discretionary award and as such the University can amend the approach as needed. If a student is awarded, the fund can provide a contribution towards an unexpected financial crisis.
There are some points to consider if you are thinking about accessing the fund:
- Please note that all applicants are expected to apply for and accept all loans, grants, and bursaries to which they are entitled before asking for help from the Fund.
- Postgraduate students can apply for the funds; however, they must provide evidence that they have made adequate provisions towards their course costs and living expenses as part of their application.
- The funds cannot be used to assist towards the payment of tuition fees and all students making an application to the fund are expected to be up to date with their tuition fee payments. Any student that applies and is debtor of the university, won’t be considered for the fund until these payments are made or at minimum brought up to date with their instalment plan chosen upon their enrolment.
