Financial Assistance

What we can do to help you?

We are able to provide financial assistance to current Aston University students via a number of different funds, trusts and bursaries.  Further information can be found by clicking on the links on the left. 

The Hub is able to assist Aston University Students in cases of unforeseen unexpected Financial Hardship through the Aston Support Fund for Home Students and the Susan Cadbury Fund for international and EU students. Eligible students in receipt of DSA can also apply for a one-off grant of £200 towards purchase of a laptop. For full information and eligibility criteria click on the link below.

At Aston University we recognise that students who are care leavers or are estranged from their families might face different or additional challenges when coming to university. This can also be the case during the transition to life after graduation.  If this applies to you then you may apply for the ‘Aston Support Fund Moving On Grant for Care Leavers and Estranged students’. This grant of £1000 aims to assist you with Moving On costs such as rental deposits, relocation costs and the cost of attending your graduation. We don’t want you to feel unsupported by the University as you move into a new stage of your life or miss out on the chance to celebrate your achievements!
