Funding and financial support

We understand that you may experience financial difficulties during your time at MDX. We're here to help you and have a wide variety of additional financial support options to fund or part-fund your education.

Student Financial Support

Financial Support is available for students who have had an unexpected emergency and are in immediate need of some financial support. The fund supports UK, EU and International students studying full-time or part-time

Applications for the fund are assessed on individual financial need with evidence.

Successful applications typically receive £200 - £500 and/or food vouchers for one week’s food. The money/vouchers are not repayable.

You can apply to the fund for immediate needs including food, utility bills, interim payments while you await benefits, technology costs for online learning.

The fund cannot be used to cover your Tuition Fees.

Response times

Applications are assessed as quickly as possible to help you with your unexpected emergency.

Successful applications will receive a payment from the fund between 7 and 10 working days after the completed application, and required evidence (typically a bank statement), has been received.

Payments made from the University bank account can take up to a further 3 working days to appear in bank accounts.
