Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is provided primarily through the government's local student finance scheme but the scheme is unable to meet all student needs and the University's own financial aid programme, administered by the Office of Student Affairs, provides a vital safeguard for many students. Students in special need are interviewed and will be offered advice on budgeting, in addition to a bursary or loan when appropriate. The responsibilities of the Office of Student Affairs also include assistance to disabled students, advice to non-local students, catering services, and assistance to student societies and activities.
