Swansea University has established a small fund to provide emergency assistance for enrolled Undergraduate and Postgraduate International students who are facing financial difficulty, which were unforeseen at the start of the course or are not within the student’s control. Unforeseen costs due to the impact of Covid-19 will be considered.
Applicants to the International Crisis Fund are required to demonstrate that they have made adequate measures to finance their course before they came to the University and that these arrangements have been affected by unforeseen circumstances or events beyond their control.
Please be advised that the Crisis Fund is not a form of funding and cannot be accessed to fund your studies or to ‘top up’ your income. There is no guarantee of an award for any student. Each application will be considered and assessed on an individual basis, with the strictest confidentiality by our expert advisors. Awards are made as a non-repayable grant, and are capped at a maximum £1500. We anticipate that many students may experience financial challenges due to the unprecedented times we’re currently facing, and it is important that you are aware that the fund is a limited resource. If you are struggling financially due to unanticipated difficulties and the above criteria applies, you are encouraged to submit an application to find out if you are eligible to receive an award.
