Part-time Leeds Financial Support

Find out how to apply for part-time Leeds Financial Support and how much you might receive.

Eligibility and how to apply 

To qualify for part-time Leeds Financial Support (LFS) you must be registered on a part-time undergraduate degree, foundation degree, diploma of higher education (DipHE) or certificate of higher education (CertHE), lasting for at least one year. You must also be studying at least 30 credits a year (25% of a full-time course).

To apply, you must download an application form for Leeds Financial Support, and you will need to submit an application every year you are a student.

  • If you have applied for a Student Finance England means-tested maintenance loan (living costs) and given consent for your household income to be shared with the University, you only need to complete and sign page 1 of the application form.

OR

  • If you have not applied for a loan, you will need to complete the entire form and provide the documents requested in the form.

Once you have completed the application form as appropriate please return it, along with the evidence listed in the form if applicable, to the Student Services Centre, Level 9 Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Building. Even if you have applied in previous years, you will need to resubmit all the evidence requested in the form for each year that you make an application unless you have applied for a means-tested maintenance loan.

You must have completed your online registration at the University for the academic year in which you are applying before submitting an application. Registration opens on 1 August each year.

UK students can opt to receive their LFS award as a cash payment, or tuition fee discount, or accommodation discount if in University accommodation. Awards will default to being paid as cash unless the student selects one of the alternative options on Minerva. EU students (with a Student Support Number prefix EURS) can only receive LFS as a tuition fee discount.
