UWE Bristol funds during your studies

Find out the different funds that are available to you whilst studying at UWE Bristol.

UWE Bristol is proud to offer students some additional funding to support while they study. These funds are subject to eligibility criteria and are designed to support those students experiencing financial difficulty. We aim to provide additional support to assist students a ‘financial safety net’ but not as a main source of funding. Providing this financial support can help students focus on their studies and put money worries aside.

The National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA) provide universities across the UK with hardship funding guidelines to ensure that a common, therefore equitable, assessment process is used.
