The Government Laptop Loan Scheme may be available to you this academic year if you need a laptop for your studies and are not able to finance it. This scheme is open to new and continuing UL students, both undergraduate and postgraduate. The Department has confirmed that this is a one-off special grant as part of a package of COVID-19-related measures and there is no provision for additional funding in future years. The terms and conditions of the Grant are as follows:
- HEI's must use the funding for purchase of devices for distribution to disadvantaged students by means of appropriate lending scheme to be managed by each individual HEI.
- The devices will remain the property of the HEI's.
