If you get into financial difficulties while studying, help is available from the Access to Learning Fund (ALF). Any awards are subject to available funding.

This provides extra money if you need help for your course or to stay in higher education. It can also provide help if you are on a low income or suffering financial hardship.

The fund can be used for course and living costs that are not met by other grants, for emergency payments to cover financial crises, or to help you if you are thinking of giving up your course because of financial difficulties.
