What support is available?

We have been working closely with the University to ensure more support is provided to all student parents. This includes a Digital Inclusion and Small Grant Loan Scheme for Home and RUK students.

Whilst not all student parents would be eligible for the scheme, there may be some out there who, for example, are currently struggling to juggle one or two screens amongst a number of children along with their own digital needs, or may be facing unworkable broadband issues due to the need to run multiple devices simultaneously. If this is you, we encourage you to apply as each application will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Digital Inclusion and Small Grant Loan Scheme

The Digital Inclusion Small Grant and Technology Loan Scheme can provide support for eligible students to access technology for their learning. Get more details on eligibility on the scholarship page.
