Student Support Team Drop-ins

There are no drop-ins.  Please make a booking with the team.

Seeking financial help (Not StudyLink)

Before booking an appointment for financial help, please complete theStudent Financial
Assistance Form

At the appointment, you will need to:

  1. 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)
  2. Demonstrate what has put you in hardship
  3. 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)
  4. Discuss your completed  Student Financial Assistance Form

*Please note - you need to be currently enrolled and attending classes to apply for this funding.

Loan laptop request form


PLEASE NOTE - You must be currently enrolled and studying to apply for a loan laptop.
There are limited laptops available to loan. Filling in the expression of interest form (link below) does not guarantee you will be able to loan a laptop


To loan a laptop, you will need to complete the following form:

Loan laptop form

Loan laptop form

Your application will be assessed and someone will be in touch with you within 5 working days (except during the Christmas closure period 16 December-9 January).

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  have not booked an appointment with the loan laptop team.

Your loan contract will be for one semester or one year depending on your enrolment (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. 

Please return the laptop when it is due back to avoid fines or further action being taken.
