Are you eligible for full UK funding?
Some EU and Swiss worker students may be able to take out full UK government student funding. This would mean being classed as an EU migrant worker. However, it is complex and subject to many criteria and strict residency regulations. Please seek advice through the University's student funding team or UKCISA before applying.
If you are assessed by SFE as an EU migrant worker or Swiss worker and are eligible for and received your student funding, you may then be able to apply to the Access to Learning Fund (a non-repayable grant from the University).
EU and International Access Fund
If you are experiencing a short term financial emergency which is unforeseen and beyond your control then you should come and see the Funding Team in the first instance. You will need to demonstrate that you had initially made adequate financial arrangements to support yourself throughout your studies, including paying your tuition fees and that your current situation is temporary.

Important information for EU migrant workers
EU students who receive UK funding as a Migrant Worker
Starting from 2015/16 academic year, migrant worker funding, for both maintenance and tuition fees, will be released on a ‘per term’ basis. This means migrant worker students will need to provide evidence of their continuous employment at the start of each term.
