UCL Financial Assistance Funds

The Financial Assistance Funds provide support to UCL students who are in unexpected financial need.

There are two separate funds. Each fund has specific eligibility criteria and you should check you are eligible before applying. More information, including how to apply, is available via these links:

1. Financial Assistance Fund for Postgraduate Research Students (FAF-PGR)

2. Financial Assistance Fund for Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught, PGCE and other students (FAF)

Please note:

  • These funds support living costs (maintenance) only and cannot be awarded to pay for tuition fees
  • If you are in need of short-term financial assistance due to a funding delay, you can apply for a UCL Short term Loan instead.
  • UCL also offers a range of additional welfare support and guidance here.

If you have any questions about these funds you can contact the UCL Student Funding Office via askUCL.
