FAQs / What is a hardship fund and how is it different from a bursary?

Universities have a legal requirement to hold some money at the university that can help students that are struggling financially. This is different for a bursary, however, as this is reserved specifically for particular circumstances, like students that are coming from low-income backgrounds or if the student has any disabilities or if they have any dependants.
