If you are unable to illustrate that this provision has been made in advance of enrolling on your course then you may not be eligible to apply for additional assistance from the Assess to Learning Fund.
Assessments for funding are made by looking at your expected income (and that of your partner if applicable) and what we consider to be reasonable expenditure on living costs, rent, travel and course-related costs.
There are national guidelines to assist us with this and we take into account local conditions for costs such as rent and travel, for example. If there appears to be a shortfall between your income and your expenditure, then you may qualify for a “standard” Access to Learning Fund award.
We will also consider “non-standard” elements of your application, for example, priority debts or sudden and emergency situations.
The Fund is available to current, home students and you can apply to it at any stage during your period of study here at Aston. If you qualify for a payment from the Fund, it will not usually have to be repaid. Any award granted by the Committee will be credited into your nominated bank account.
