Support to help cover study costs
If you're experiencing extreme financial difficulty, you may be eligible for a financial assistance to help with living expenses and the costs of studying at university.
We also have practical information on budgeting and finding work to help reduce financial stress.
Requesting student financial support
If extreme financial hardship is adversely impacting your studies, you can lodge a request for one-off financial support to help cover education-related expenses.
When completing the request, you will be asked to provide bank statements that demonstrate your financial position as well other supporting documents. Please provide as much information as you can.
