UCLan Financial Support

We are making some changes to make it easier for UCLan students to seek additional Financial Support.

If you are experiencing financial hardship, have an unexpected or exceptional financial need or are in one of our priority groups for support, you may eligible for a non-repayable grant or bursary to help towards your costs.

There are also non-monetary support services available such as online financial capability courses to help with budgeting, financial advice for debts and benefits from our Student Union Advice and Representation Centre and help from our experienced team in resolving complex funding queries.

If you need any immediate financial support, you will still be able to apply for a Short Term Loan if required.

How do I apply for Financial Support?

After you have applied for Financial Support, you will be contacted by an adviser who will tell you what evidence you will need to supply to be considered for any monetary support from UCLan. You will have the chance to ask questions about what evidence we need and will receive emailed confirmation for you to refer back to.
