Hardship Fund

Academic year 2020

Overview

To assist enrolled students who have experienced unforeseen or change of circumstances NCIUL is offering a hardship fund of £1000 per successful application. This fund will be allocated towards tuition fees and will help as a temporary relief of instalment payments (if applicable). Students are liable for the remaining balance and each payment must be made by the deadline dates. Please note that this fund is available to assist with short-term urgent situations only.

Bursaries are discretionary and applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis. We encourage students to provide as much relevant information as possible in order to create a full picture of individual circumstances.

Selection Criteria:

  • Applicants can be either UK or an international students
  • Applicants must be already enrolled, studying on a programme and have completed at least one academic semester
  • Must be able to provide evidence that adequate provisions were made to cover tuition fees prior to the start of the academic year.
  • Must be able to provide evidence of the change of circumstance or an unfortunate event
  • Normally be up to date with instalment payments

Examples of situations in which we may be able to assist include redundancy, an inability to work or costs associated with the death or sickness of a close relative.

A panel will meet to discuss each application case-by-case. All applicants will be contacted shortly after the panel has met with the outcome of your hardship application.

Applications should be made by completing an application form and submitting it electronically to [email protected], along with any supporting documents.

Please see the terms and conditions for more information or contact [email protected] if you have any questions

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
