Financial Aid

In conjunction with UL Student Life and the Postgraduate Students’ Union, the University administers a Financial Aid Fund. The 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 a student qualifies for assistance, she/he will receive an interest free loan which 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 you are experiencing financial difficulty and wish to apply for either a loan or a childcare bursary, you can contact Fr John Campion, UL Chaplain in Room CM071 in the Main Building, or 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 also available from the Welfare Officer in UL Student Life or the Student Information and Support Coordinators, email:
