Delayed Funding Loans are available to help undergraduate students who find themselves in temporary financial hardship whilst they await confirmation of their Student Finance. The loan is interest-free, and it’s expected this will be re-paid once you receive your maintenance loan from Student Finance.
You can apply for a loan of £200 to help cover essential expenses, such as food and travel. The loan is intended to support you for a short period of time (approximately 4 weeks) and is not intended to cover rent and bills. Only 1 Delayed Funding Loan application per semester will be accepted. If, after receiving a loan, your maintenance loan from Student Finance continues to be delayed you can apply to our Student Success (Support) Fund for additional support.
Please note the following:
Delayed Funding Loans are only available from the official start date of your course, and only if you have completed registration.
Loans may not be offered if you already have an outstanding debt to the University, or if you’ve defaulted on a previous loan.
Loans are not offered to students who have other sources of funding available to them (including the use of bank funds to within £200 of any agreed limit, including overdrafts).
Loans are not offered if you’ve already received your maintenance loan from Student Finance.
