    Hey, does anybody else’s uni reauire them to prove they have at least 174£ per week as an eligibility criteria for a hardship fund? I mean, am I not applying because I am poor? Or is it that I can’t be TOO poor. Makes no sense?

    The hardship fund isn't designed to be a source of long-term funding. Generally, it's described by unis as for people who have "higher than expected costs". It's for unexpected expenses or circumstances - you're supposed to have student funding in place, but for some reason you just need a bit of extra help.

    So yes, you need to be able to prove that you were expecting to afford university. If you can't then it's useless giving you funding - you'll just be back for more later, or will need to drop out anyway.
