From August 2014 the Access to Learning Fund will cease to operate. This is because the Government no longer provides specific ALF funding to universities.
At Aston University we value our diverse student population and will continue to provide quality support and confidential advice to students experiencing financial difficulty.
From August 2014 we have secured limited funding to continue with our work assisting home students in genuine financial difficulty.
We are currently building an application form and methodology for the 2014/15 academic year. We will release further news about this when it is available. The new fund will be launched from 1 September 2014.
We will continue to assess Access to Learning Fund applications as normal until the end of August 2014 using the Access to Learning Fund guidance for this period.
