Overview:

Applications are considered from students who have made proper provision to fund a degree or higher education course but find themselves facing unexpected financial difficulties which may prevent completion of it; also from students who are required, as part of their course, to spend a short period studying abroad.  Applicants must be full-time students at a British University.

Eligibility:

  • Two categories of tertiary level students are eligible for consideration:
    • those who have made proper provision to fund a degree or higher education course but find themselves facing unexpected financial difficulties which may prevent completion of it.
