Higher education institutions will typically offer hardship funds to assist students with additional financial expenditure arising from unforeseen events (e.g. theft, fire) or due to circumstances over and above the usual costs facing an individual student. So, if you have further to travel, childcare responsibilities or higher than average course costs, you might be able to get some additional financial support from a hardship fund.
If you make a successful application, you might find that it is a contribution to your situation, rather than all the money you require, but the Fund will usually try to make a meaningful contribution - and the money does not usually need to be paid back.
