New undergraduate or postgraduate students with low household income can apply for financial assistance towards equipment to support online learning.

Remote learning and virtual campuses have become an important part of life for higher education students. We appreciate that not all our students may be able to access our virtual learning spaces. For 2021/22, we have dedicated funds to ensure that those without access to technology can apply for support towards the equipment they need to get online. The Online Access Fund is funded by our Greenwich Hardship Fund and there are a capped number of awards. We offer these on a first-come, first-served basis.
