Let's talk about money

student support

While studying, there may be times that you need to access financial support but quite often it’s hard to talk about money with your friends and family. If you experiencing financial hardship or there has been a delay in receiving your student loan or for any other reason, please come and talk to us.

UCLan offers different types of financial support and will work with you to find the best solution for you and your circumstances. You can access support at any time during your life at UCLan, and we offer everything from Student Carer’s Bursaries, the Access to Learning Fund, the Harris Bursary Fund and more.
You can find out more about the support we offer here and below we have some more details about the Harris Bursary Fund, which you may be eligible for.

Harris Bursary Fund

The Harris Bursary Fund is aimed at students who require support to fund studies, including course-related enrichment activities, equipment, materials or living costs. It can be accessed at any time during your UCLan life to provide emergency help to ensure you can continue studying here.

The help offered is limited but it nevertheless provides the catalyst to help you refocus and continue studying. Often all that is required is help with essential study related items such as text books and computer equipment.

The Harris Bursary Fund relies heavily on charitable donations - both personal and corporate and this is why the University supports the Fund as part of the National Student Survey. If you are in your final year of study, The National Student Survey (NSS) is the chance to tell the world about your experience at UCLan.

For every student who fills in the survey, the University gives a donation to the Harris Bursary Fund, which ultimately goes back to students who need financial help and support.

If you are struggling with your finances, please do come and talk to us in the <i>, call 01772 895000 or email thei@uclan.ac.uk .  We will try and find a solution that is right for you and can provide more information about the Harris Bursary Fund.
