Emergency funding

You should make sure you have enough money to cover all of your living expenses for each term you are studying at Cardiff Met. You can do this through good budgeting and money management.

If you run out of money due to unforeseen circumstances you may be eligible to receive financial support for your living costs. You will be expected to demonstrate that you have taken all reasonable measures to ensure you have enough money to last you until your next income payment (eg Student Finance instalments, wages from a job, etc).


Student Finance instalment delay

If your student finance has been delayed and you are unable to cover essential costs because of this, we may be able to help you. 


Dyslexia assessment costs

If you have been advised to have a dyslexia assessment, but you are unable to cover the costs of this, you can apply for help.

To get started, complete our Dyslexia Screening Request form

Our Wellbeing team will provide a link to the funding application form following your appointment with them.


Student Support Fund

From 1 November, you can apply for financial support though our Financial Support Request form.

International and EU students facing urgent financial hardship as a result of a significant and unexpected situation should discuss their situation with our Global Engagement team.
