Congregations

Financial Assistance

We are pleased to offer a ‘Congregations Package’ to any current registered students who receive a financial award via the Student Financial Support Fund or the Financial Assistance Fund. This is because we do not want financial circumstances to be a barrier to any student wishing to attend Congregation. The Congregations package covers the cost of academic dress and a photography bundle.

These funds are provided by the University to give discretionary financial assistance to registered students who are in financial difficulty, struggling to make ends meet, or who are unable to cover essential daily living costs.

Applying to the Student Financial Support Fund or the Financial Assistance Fund for the Congregations Package may also make you eligible for further financial assistance, which could help with more general living costs.

How to apply

Complete the financial assistance application form by Friday 30 August.

Please ensure that you enter the reference ‘Congregations Package’ in the ‘Other’ box at the bottom of the expenditure table on the application form. There is no need to enter a monetary value next to this.
