About the Hardship Fund

The Falmouth University Hardship Fund is designed to help you if you encounter unforeseen financial problems during the academic year.

When you apply to the Hardship Fund you'll be assessed. The assessment will consider your income, outgoings and original funding plan for the year. In addition, details of the unforeseen circumstance(s) you've encountered will be needed. Further details on the fund can be found below in the Hardship Fund General Notes.

Students on our online courses will be considered for support in relation to their tuition fees only. If such students have been impacted by an unforeseen financial issue which directly effects their ability to pay tuition fees, they should talk to their Student Advisor.
