At Aston University we value our diverse student population and are committed to providing quality support and confidential advice to students experiencing financial difficulty.
From August 2014 the Access to Learning Fund (ALF) will cease to operate. This is because the Government no longer provides specific ALF funding to universities. We will continue to assess Access to Learning Fund applications for current students as normal until the end of July 2014.
From August 2014 we have secured alternative funding to assist home students with unexpected financial difficulties. We are currently putting together guidance for the new funding and will update you when it becomes available.
If you have any questions about funding for students facing financial difficulties, please contact Patrick Coughlan in the Hub. Alternatively, please leave you details below and we'll update you when the new guidance is available.
