Living Costs Fund

The Living Costs Fund

The Living Costs Fund (LCF) is designed to provide a safety net to help you to continue to study as you adjust to your student income.

Due to high demand, there are limited funds available.

Students in financial hardship and eligible, will receive a food voucher or small amount of money that can be used to buy some food, toiletries or pay all or part of a bill or childcare costs.

The Living Cost Fund will remain open until funds are exhausted.

To qualify for a food voucher or money, you must be in financial hardship.

The application includes a budget planner to help you manage your money during your studies.

The fund is open to enrolled students*, or those retaking modules this year. Money or vouchers do not need to be repaid.

Living Costs Fund Application Form

*The fund is not available for some programmes that are offered as joint programmes with NSPC (New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling), Metanoia and QAHE (QA Higher Education).
