The Hardship and Lundgren funds make awards to students who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of unexpected changes in their financial circumstances. In assessing applications the Student Registry relies greatly on the student’s application, supervisors’ comments and the Tutors’ recommendations. It is the aim of the funds to help support students to complete a course, but not necessarily the one they came to study. Therefore, students experiencing funding collapse early in their studies might be better advised to intermit until they can put a funding package back in place. Also students can normally only apply once to these funds.
