Financial Support Service

About us

The Financial Support Service provides support to students who are experiencing financial difficulty and whose academic work may suffer as a result.

Interest-free loan and bursary assistance is intended to help students in emergencies so that they can maintain a reasonable standard of living. However, support cannot be provided as a regular source of income.

Students may apply for support more than once during their degree.

We are able to assist students with a number of essential living and study expenses, such as:

  • Textbooks, readers, journals
  • Bond, rent in advance, and rent arrears
  • Phone, electricity, and gas bills
  • Medical and dental bills
  • Travel and accommodation costs for compulsory placements.

We are unable to assist with the following:

  • Payment of compulsory subscriptions
  • Payment of HECS or tuition fees including Summer/Winter School fees
  • Purchase of cars
  • Holidays
  • Financial penalties (traffic and library fines)

Assistance takes around 4 to 10 days to be approved, processed and placed into your bank account.
