Reference: FOI2012/063


1.) Numbers of applications for hardship funds in 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12.

2.) Numbers of hardship fund awards made to students in each of those years (i.e. successful applications).

3.) Total value of hardship fund awards in each of those years.

4.) How many non-monetary (eg food parcels) hardship awards were made in each of those years?


1.) We do not keep a record of rejected applications as most applications are granted an award. Less than 10 each year are unsuccessful. So application numbers are close to number of awards. Please see below.

2.) 162, 156, 175 respectively

3.) £84,500, £80,219 and £93,341 respectively

4.) We have not helped students with non-monetary aid in the years mentioned.
