Hardship funds

SOAS students experiencing financial difficulties can apply for a grant to help with the cost of living or childcare. 

To qualify you must be studying a part-time or full-time on-campus programme. We have different funds that support SOAS students in different situations. Please read the document SOAS Hardship Fund Guidance before applying.

SOAS Hardship Funds are designed to provide short-term financial assistance to temporary hardship. If you need advice on your current financial situation, please book an appointment with the Student Advice Service to discuss your options. 

SOAS Hardship Funds cannot help with paying tuition fees.   

To apply please complete the SOAS Hardship Fund application. The deadline to apply to the 23/24 Hardship Funds is Friday 28 June 2024.
