Student Support Funds - Your Experience

Closed 5 Jan 2024

Opened 7 Dec 2023


The Student Support Funds, also known as the Hardship Funds, are provided by the Department for the Economy and administered by Queen's University, Ulster University, Stranmillis University College, St Mary's University College and The Open University on an annual basis. The Funds offer financial help to students whose access to higher education might be inhibited by financial considerations, or who, for whatever reason, including physical or other disabilities, face financial difficulties in meeting their living costs.

This survey is aimed at any student who may have applied for the Funds through their institution.
