UCL Financial Assistance
Are you a current UCL student in financial need or hardship? You maybe eligible to apply for assistance from UCL:
At UCL we understand students can face a range of financial issues and we aim to help and advise you as much as possible, so you have a more control over your own financial situation. We offer information online and one-to-one support through appointments and a drop-in counter service to discuss any questions you may have. We can advise on a range of issues including budgeting your money, banks accounts, hardship fund, access to learning fund, student loan company funding, loans, bursaries and more.
The Student Funding Team offers a drop-in counter service which operates from G19 of the South Wing, Mon –Fri 10am-4pm. You can emil the student funding team on email@example.com For those students who would like to discuss or ask a question over the phone please call 020 7679 0004.
Students with a more complex or sensitive circumstances can make an appointment with the Student Funding Welfare Adviser who can offer a 30-45min appointment service every Tuesday 2pm–5pm and Thursdays from 9.30am to 11am. This service aims to help students discuss any confidential financial problems they may have in person. The adviser can also help with the basics of financial management and budgeting as well as point you in the right direction should you require specialist support.
Appointments are held throughout the year at 4 Taviton Street which you can find using UCL's interactive maps website. You will need to buzz to enter the building. Please remember to bring your student ID card with you.
UCL offers a range of scholarships, grants and bursaries for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students, which we would advise you to explore.
Careful planning will help you avoid financial hardship during your studies. There are a wealth of resources available to help you plan your finances both before and during your studies, including budget calculators, planners, financial advice and money-saving tips.

The Access to Learning Fund (ALF) provides discretionary financial assistance for HOME students to help them access and remain in higher education, particularly those students who need financial help to meet costs that cannot be met from other sources of funding.
The UCL Student Hardship Fund is available to help Home/EU/International students who have made realistic provisions to fund their studies and have experienced unforeseen financial hardship. Applicants may be students in any Faculty and in any year of their programme of study.
Limited loans are available to assist students who due to unexpected circumstances find themselves in financial difficulty (i.e. delays in payment of student support or stipend, loss of bank cards etc).
There are a number of Scholarships, prizes and bursaries (mostly provided by trust funds) that are awarded each year to current students.
