Financial Support

We offer an Undergraduate Financial Support Fund, which we advertise at the start of each term, aiming to credit to battels in Week 8. You can apply to the fund for a range of purposes, including:

  • Academic resources such as books and equipment
  • Extended periods of vacation residence (though during Michaelmas, only if essential)
  • Travel for academic purposes, such as conferences and research trips
  • Internship costs, such as travel and accommodation
  • Additional funding for care experienced of estranged students
  • Unexpected temporary financial hardship
  • Resources to support academic studies as a Visiting Student

“I have applied several times for money through the undergraduate financial support fund, which has allowed me to get expensive train tickets reimbursed. It means I don’t have to worry so much about the additional costs – e.g. I got to travel to London to go to the Houses of Parliament for a meeting which was really helpful for my dissertation.”
