Student Support Advisors: Bookings
Many staff are working on campus or from home on different days.
Please carefully select the location that you would like to have the appointment.
PLEASE NOTE - last day to apply 17 June 2022
Applications for Covid Hardship funding in 2022 is open for currently enrolled students (international students are not eligible for this funding).
To apply for funding you must be impacted by financial hardship due to Covid (lockdowns/employment etc.) - please use the Covid Hardship form above to apply.
Please note that your application complete with documentation outlined on the Covid Hardship form needs to be submitted in full before your application will be considered.
This fund is to assist with:
- Housing (including rent arrears)
- Utilities (power, internet, phone).
- Transport (including car repairs)
- Study related materials (except laptops and tech items)
You are able to make an appointment regarding other issues you encounter, such as:
Financial support for hardship and study needs
StudyLink application support
Issues that may be impacting your studies or study experience
Access to the food cupboard (includes toiletries/period supplies)
Referrals and/or connecting you to other student services both on and off campus
Tell us where your money has gone this week (we will need to see transactions for the last week – showing us on mobile/internet banking at the appointment is fine, but we do prefer this to be uploaded with your application if possible)
Demonstrate what has put you in hardship
Provide verification of any bills/costs you have paid this week (we will need to see a receipt, or show us the payment on mobile/internet banking)
*Please note - you need to be currently enrolled and attending classes to apply for this funding.
Drop-in Studylink support sessions for completing StudyLink applications have been cancelled due to Covid.
Please make a face to face appointment with an Advisor or contact Studylink directly on 0800 88 99 00 for support with your application & the Student Loan/Student Allowance process.
Please note: it is important to check with Fees Free if you are eligible for Fees Free funding each semester. If you believe your fees have been paid with a scholarship please check emails from the team to ensure this is correct. If you are receiving fee reminders please contact Study Central firstname.lastname@example.org asap to ensure your fees have been paid.
Loan laptop request form
To loan a laptop, you will need to complete the following form:
Your application will be assessed and someone will be in touch with you within 5 working days.
If you receive an email approving your application please read it carefully and follow the instructions to book and collect the laptop - you are not able to collect a laptop if you have not been approved and booked an appointment with the team.
Your loan contract will be for one year (unless your programme/enrolment ends earlier) and you will need to return the laptop at the end of this loan period so other students can also have an opportunity to loan a laptop.
