What is the Financial Support Bursary? 

The Financial Support Bursary (the “Bursary”) is available to students who are experiencing genuine and unforeseen financial hardship whilst at university, despite having applied for and received all other financial support. The Bursary can provide support for disability needs assessment or, in exceptional cases, non-repayable grants towards essential living expenses or one-off unplanned costs. The Bursary can also help to purchase essential IT equipment and/or short-term broadband connection for study. Funding to help applicants in hardship to gain access to high quality and reliable IT equipment and/or short-term broadband connection will receive priority. 

The Bursary cannot under any circumstances be used to fund the following: 

  • tuition fees - you must be in receipt of student finance or have a signed payment plan in place which covers your tuition fees; 
  • debts including gambling activities; or 
  • medium to long-term financial instability and shortfall.  

Not all Bursary awards shall result in a cash payment. The University may choose to distribute goods directly e.g., a pre-approved laptop, or to issue a supermarket service voucher or broadband service voucher in relation to its preferred supplier. 

 

Who is eligible? 

To be eligible for this scheme, you must meet the following student requirements: 

  • be UK domiciled (with settled status where applicable) [applies to Emergency Fund, Inclusion Bursary and Digital Support]

OR

  • be a registered and enrolled student at our Berlin Campus and domiciled in Germany [Berlin Hardship Fund]
  • enrolled on a full-time or part-time basis to one of Arden’s Undergraduate of Postgraduate programmes;  
  • demonstrate a clear shortfall in income versus expenditure which is directly contributing to financial hardship; this includes an inability to meet basic living costs such as food, household bills, and/or travel;  
  • be in receipt of the full Student Tuition Fee Loan to which you are entitled from the Student Loans Company or have entered into a registered payment plan with Arden University; 
  • be able to provide full evidence of all incomings and outgoings along with evidence of any dependents; and 
  • where seeking funding for IT equipment, evidence of unaffordability, and confirmation that such equipment is not available via other grants and schemes such as the Disabled Students’ Allowance. 

 

Students who are not eligible for the bursary are still encouraged to seek advice and guidance on debt and money from agencies such as Citizens Advice (Debt and money - Citizens Advice). 

 

What evidence is required? 

Once your eligibility has been verified the University will request that you submit supporting documentary evidence relevant to your circumstances to the Student Success Team. Regardless of the element of the Bursary you are applying for and to support your Bursary application, you are required to provide accurate, up to date and relevant evidence to support your reasons for applying. The evidence required is dependent on your individual circumstances; details of required evidence will be provided to you once your eligibility has been confirmed. In addition to the standard evidence listed above, you may be asked to provide additional evidence if the assessor deems it necessary.  

Bank Statements 

Please note that bank statements must be submitted as either a scan of the original document or in PDF format exported from your online banking or mobile banking app. You must submit bank statements that cover the 3 months before the date of your application.  

All bank statements must include any income and expenditure quoted in your application and be in a clear and readable format, containing the following information: 

  • Student’s name and address; 
  • Bank details, including sort code and account number;

If your income was zero or you have an emergency tax code (e.g., ending in M1, W1, or T) you must submit a statement of earnings instead of a P60 (unless you are claiming one of the means-tested benefits listed below). For any additional income e.g., from external funding or government benefits please include a list of payments you have received and are yet to receive.

Financial Support Fund Element 

Award 

Conditions 

Emergency Fund / Financial Hardship

Food vouchers 

BACS transfer 

Your evidence will be reviewed, and the decision will be made based on your income, expenditure, and current financial status. Once assessed the University will exercise its discretion as to whether a standard or nonstandard award is to be granted. Standard awards are those made to help with the general costs of being a student, where essential expenditure is offset against expected income. If the former is higher, the student is viewed as having an ‘additional need’; the University contributes 70% for a period of 8 weeks. If the former is not higher but the student requires short-term support, vouchers for supplies will be awarded. Non-standard awards should be used for students who evidence unforeseen exceptional circumstances; the value of the award is discretionary based on the evidence provided by the student. 

Digital Inclusion Bursary

A specified laptop will be awarded to you by the University.  

A gifted voucher for internet broadband will be awarded for a short-term solution of 3-months. 

The laptop will include essential software to complete your studies. The make and model of the laptop are variable and dependent on availability however it will be assessed to meet basic student requirements for study. Where a student is studying a course which requires non-standard software the university may consider alternative support options which suit the student’s needs. You are not permitted to sell the laptop whilst you remain a student at Arden University.  

Internet broadband will be gifted as part of a voucher for a period of up to 3 months. 

Inclusion Bursary

You may book an assessment with the university’s specified provider. The provider will be reimbursed directly by Arden University.  

Any assessment must be booked in at the student’s earliest convenience and confirmed with the Student Inclusion Team. 

Berlin Hardship fund

Financial support (typically 200EUR) for essential food and travel

Evidence of financial hardship

 

Arden University funds membership of the National Association of Student Money Advisers (NAMSA). Assessors, who are members of NASMA, will examine how well you meet the eligibility criteria for the Bursary with a particular focus on: 

Provision: you must have made realistic provision for all course-related costs, including fees, before starting your course.  

  • Examples of provision may include permanent employment or a suitable level of savings. The Financial Support Fund can only assist with urgent, short-termsituations and should therefore not be considered as a primary source of funding.  

An unforeseen change in circumstance: This must occur after the start of the course, and in the same academic year that you are applying for the Bursary.  

  • Examples of unforeseen change may include redundancy, illness, or domestic issue.  

Supporting statement: as part of your application form you will be asked to provide a statement and it should consider the two points above.  

Financial Situation: In addition to the information in your personal statement, we will look at your income and expenditure to understand your financial situation. If you have high levels of non-essential expenditure, your application may be rejected.  

 

All information provided in support of your application will be considered and we encourage you to provide as much information as possible to give us a full picture of your circumstances.  

We aim to complete the assessment and provide an outcome of a complete application with evidence within 20 working days, if you are required to provide further evidence to support your application, the 20 working days will only start from the point we have received all necessary evidence.  

 

Award arrangements 

  • Payment will only be processed for successful applications within 7-10 working days and will be paid directly to your nominated UK bank account as stated in your application. 

Where there is an urgent need for food or travel this may be expedited providing the student has specified this in their application form. Where possible awards will be sent digitally via email however vouchers may also require postage.  

Typically, you will not be eligible for multiple awards from the Bursary within the same academic year. However, in exceptional circumstances and if you are experiencing unexpected and unforeseen financial difficulty an additional claim may be considered. In this event, you will need to complete a brand-new application form and submit evidence to your support your new application. Please note that you can only apply for the Bursary in the same academic year if you have not been in receipt or awarded the Bursary within the last 3 calendar months.  

Please note that internet, travel, and food vouchers will only be issued as a short-term solution, and it will be the student’s responsibility to ensure that long-term provision is in place.  

 

Award suspension and termination 

The award will be suspended during a period of approved leave of absence where this period covers a whole or part of an academic year. On your return to studies, you may apply/reapply for the Bursary if you meet the eligibility criteria.  

If you withdraw from your studies or are required to withdraw, any scheduled Bursary award(s) will not be made. Your award will be terminated if you cease to be registered as a student or for good cause at the discretion of the Financial Support Team.  

Arden University reserves the right to recover funds where a Bursary has been awarded under false pretence or these terms and conditions have been breached.  

 

Appeals  

If you are dissatisfied with the decision of your outcome, you can appeal within 10 working days of your outcome via email to hardshipfund@arden.ac.uk  

Your appeal will be considered by the Inclusion Services Manager or his/her nominee with respect to the details raised in your appeal. Arden University has absolute discretion on the outcome of your application form and if your appeal is unsuccessful then the decision is final.

For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but you continue to have access to the Programme, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
