The University Access Fund (UAF) is for home (UK) students who are in financial dfficulty. You must be in receipt of your full entitlement to statutory funding and exemptions, including; state benefits, overdrafts and council tax discounts / exemptions (this list is not exhaustive). If you're eligible for support but aren't in receipt of your full entitlement, you're not eligible for an award from the fund.
You must be registered and in attendance on an eligible course. If you're intercalating then you must contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your situation. You may apply once to the UAF during each academic year. If your circumstances change you can contact us to discuss a re-assessment, provided you're still within the period in which applications can be accepted. Your application will be assessed over the whole academic year, regardless of when you apply.
The UAF may not be able to financially support every application received and may be unable to meet all the costs for which you are applying. Awards are discretionary.
It's important that you fully complete the application form and send us all the evidence requested. Any missing, incorrect or illegible information will mean that your application will be delayed or not processed.
If you require assistance in completing this form please contact Student Wellbeing Services.
As long as you have provided us with all the information requested, a decision should be made within four working weeks of us receiving your completed application. You'll be notified by email to your Bath Spa University address. Any award will be paid within ten working days of notification.
Unfortunately during busy times, such as the first term, applications may take longer to assess. The Christmas closure will mean complete applications submitted after Friday 22 November will not receive the outcome until the new year.
Closing date for undergraduates and PGCE is 15 May 2020.
