Non-repayable support
A fund that may be available to provide help for eligible full-time and eligible part-time students who have serious financial difficulties or whose access to higher education might be inhibited because of financial reasons.
For full-time students - designed to support students whose expenses (that we can consider) exceed their income.
For part-time students - students whose income is below set thresholds may qualify for support with specific course related expenses.

In both cases, an application is required and a means test of income and certain expenses is carried out to determine whether a student qualifies for an award. If they qualify, these awards are non-repayable.
