Financial hardship funding

If you're in financial difficulty while you are a student with us, you may be able to apply for financial support from the University to help with living expenses.

The Leeds Financial Assistance Fund is a University-funded scheme for students and postgraduate researchers who are facing genuine or unexpected financial difficulties and who do not have alternative sources of financial support.

Students are assessed on their individual needs and any help you get from the fund is non-repayable.

You can apply at any time from the date you register up to the last day of your course. 

You can find more information about the Financial Assistance Fund on our website for current students.
