The Access to Learning Fund (ALF) is provided by the university to assist UK students who are experiencing financial difficulty which may threaten their ability to remain in Higher Education. It is intended to be a 'safety net' for students who have a shortfall in their income, not to support those who have mismanaged their money or simply overspent.

  • Students are assessed on an individual basis
  • Awards are subject to availability and meeting the qualifying criteria
  • The Access to Learning Fund cannot be used to help students meet the cost of tuition fees
  • All awards will be paid by BACS
  • It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all supporting evidence is submitted
