Many of our students are facing challenges when it comes to employment, accommodation or covering the costs involved with the transition to online learning. With that in mind, the University has been working hard to create additional financial support options for students impacted by COVID-19.
Two types of financial assistance will soon be made available by application for international and domestic students currently enrolled in HE coursework, HDR, Urban School, VE and Foundation Studies:
- Emergency Financial Grant: to help students impacted by job loss, housing insecurity or other financial matters associated with COVID-19, for essential living expenses.
- Technology Grant: to help students access essential equipment and continue studying remotely.
We’ll be letting students know about this additional financial support soon, and they will be able to submit applications through an easy online form. We are moving as quickly as we can and will provide you with further information as soon as the detail is finalised.
