The UK Government has provided the University with a fund to support students who have been financially impacted by the pandemic.
The Covid Hardship Fund is a discretionary fund to help current students access and remain in higher education and to meet extra costs that cannot be met by other types of support.
If you are currently experiencing financial hardship and/or you are struggling with unexpected expenses, such as childcare, travel, rent and course related costs, you can apply to the fund.
The COVID Hardship Fund is avaliable to all registered UoB students, and you will not need to be pay any of the money back.
