Financial Aid

In conjunction with UL Student Life and the Postgraduate Students’ Union, the University administers two types of financial aid. The Financial Aid Fund is supported by gifts from UL Alumni through the UL Foundation’s Alumni Annual Fund Appeal and through UL Student Capitation. This scheme is designed to help students who experience short-term financial problems. If the student qualifies for assistance, she/he will receive an interest free loan. This loan is repayable in full prior to graduation. Additionally, student parents who are experiencing financial difficulties can apply for a Childcare Bursary to support them with their childcare/child-minder costs.

If a student is experiencing financial difficulty and wishes to apply for either type of funding, she/he is encouraged to call to Room CM071 in the main building to meet with the chaplain, or alternatively, the student can email to make an appointment. Any postgraduate student wishing to avail of either type of funding can email  for an appointment. Application Forms and further information are available from the Welfare Officer in UL Student Life  or the Student Information and Support Coordinator, Jenny Blake, email:  or the PSU in the Stables Courtyard.

Student Assistance Fund

The objective of the Fund is to provide financial support to both Full-time and Part-time undergraduate or postgraduate students in need of such support. The fund is intended to support students whose participation in higher education would otherwise be at risk as a direct result of financial difficulties.

The Fund supports students who are experiencing difficulty in meeting the day-to-day expenses associated with attending college, or who encounter unforeseen circumstances ressulting in short or longer-term financial difficulties, (e.g. family difficulties, bereavement, accidents or health problems).
