As part of the hardship support offered by Brunel, eligible students can receive non-repayable loans of up to £500. The student must demonstrate that they are in genuine and unexpected hardship and in immediate financial need, allowing them to continue with their studies. Decisions are made within five days and extra support is offered through the Student Centre.
Donations are applied to...
Students are experiencing unexpected financial crisis or emergency situations. Payments are made direct to the third party (i.e. childminder) but can also be payable in cash or Costcutter vouchers.
With your support, students who may otherwise have to leave Brunel are given emergency hardship funding through difficult financial circumstances. In the last year, the need for financial support for students has been overwhelming and, including government support, we have made more than £1m available in total.
Why are donations necessary?
Students who may otherwise have to leave Brunel are given support through difficult financial circumstances that may have otherwise meant they had to abandon their education. Brunel demonstrates its pastoral responsibility for its students.
In the last year, the need for financial support for students has been overwhelming and, including government support, we have made more than £1m available in total. This has included fast-track funding for smaller, immediate needs such as food packs, to significant longer-term support to meet off-campus accommodation costs due to the pandemic.
