Swansea University Opportunity Award
Once enrolled, UK and EU students at Swansea University are able to apply to the Swansea University Opportunity Award. It is available for full time and part time students at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
The Opportunity Award is the main Hardship Fund within Swansea University and is intended to support students through any unexpected or difficult financial circumstances whilst at University.
It is not a form of funding, but a safety net for when financial difficulties occur and can be applied for as many times each year as the student sees fit.
There is no guarantee of an award for any student but each application will be considered and assessed on an individual basis, with the strictest confidentiality by our expert advisors.
Awards are made as an unrepayable grant, so we would encourage any student who is struggling with their money to submit an application to find out if they are eligible to receive an award.
Current Students can apply using our online application form, and more information can be found on our Help with Hardship MyUni page.
