Access to learning fund Access to learning fund

The Access to Learning Fund (ALF) is a non-repayable discretionary fund used to provide grants to home students (undergraduate and postgraduate) in order to relieve financial pressures, so they can concentrate on their studies and remain in higher education. The fund can be used to:

  • Meet specific course and living costs not already met from other sources
  • Assist students in financial hardship
  • Provide emergency payments to deal with unexpected financial crises
  • Help students considering leaving their courses due to financial problems

Please note that the Fund cannot help with tuition fees, and there is no guarantee of an award upon application. Applications for the 2019/20 academic year are now open.
