What can you do?
The school Financial Support Office (FSO) has some means-tested funding which is available to students facing an unexpected financial hardship. The guidance notes and application form can be found on the LSE website.

If you have problems paying your tuition fees, it would be a good idea to contact the Fees Office to discuss your situation.

Dealing with any debts you have is also crucial as these can spiral quickly and cause long lasting issues. We would suggest contacting a debt advice agency, you can find a free service on Money Advice Service.

If you are looking for support in advance of starting your course, you may also want to consider contacting the FSO as they do have a limited number of scholarships and bursaries.
What can we do?
At the LSESU, we administer a means-tested fund which is designed to support students who are unable to afford basic living expenses (i.e. rent, food and bills) as a result of an unforeseen event. Our funding is limited and we can only provide financial support on a short term basis. If you feel as though this applies to your situation, please do get in touch and we can discuss an application. For the full guidance and application forms, please see our website here.
Please note, we do not offer scholarships or funding prior to your course. We also cannot provide support with tuition fees.
