Student Support Fund
Every week, about 200 students approach VU's welfare services looking for short-term, immediate and practical support. Many are concerned about failing their classes due to economic and emotional difficulties.
The financial pressures of studying, such as bills, rent and text book expenses can be overwhelming, particularly for first year students and those with little or no family support.
Through the Student Support Fund, we are able to offer practical, small-scale financial support. This kind of support can mean the difference between completing study or dropping out.
