Hardship fund - Laptop Loan Scheme

The University has a limited supply of laptops available for students to borrow on a short-term basis. Students must have a term time address in the UK or, by exception, the EU. Equipment should wherever possible be collected in person. If this is not viable, alternative arrangements will be considered. The initial loan will be for 2 weeks after which it will need to be formally renewed, if still required. The maximum loan period will be 3 months. Students can request subsequent loans. However, this will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

To be eligible to borrow a laptop you must meet the following criteria.

Criteria A

You should not have access to an appropriate specification laptop at the time of the request.


Criteria B – You must meet one or more of the following:

  1. You are able to evidence that due to financial hardship you have been unable to purchase suitable equipment and / or internet connectivity.
  2. Your course requires a laptop of a particular specification and / or software that your existing machine cannot support, causing issues with completion of course work

  4. You are an estranged student
  5. You are a student with a disability or support need
  6. You live with people in high risk groups

Latest Updates

SFNI: It's time for full-time undergraduate students to apply for AY 2021/22

It’s time for new full-time undergraduate students from Northern Ireland to apply for student finance. Online applications only take around 30 minutes and students need to follow 3 simple steps.

  1. Register online

  2. Fill in the application

New students will usually need to create an account. If they have applied for student finance before or received Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), they may already have one. In this case, they should use the same account details and Customer Reference Number (CRN).

Students will need their passport, bank details and National Insurance number.

  1. Provide evidence

Students will need to give any evidence we ask for. If they do not, it could delay their application. They should also ask their parents, carers or partners to give us any income details we need as soon as possible.

Apply early

The deadline for new students to apply is 15 April. Please apply before then to make sure you get your student finance in time for starting your course. 

New students do not need a confirmed place at university or college before they apply. They can apply using their preferred choice and change their details later if they need to
