University Financial Aid

  • The primary purpose of University Financial Aid is to relieve financial difficulties which might impact on a student's participation in higher education at Oxford Brookes and to help them remain at the University.

    Financial Aid for students affected by Covid-19

    • If you have an urgent need to travel home due to Covid-19 and are struggling with transport costs, please email us at finaid@brookes.ac.uk  We will fast-track your enquiry.
    • If you can't support yourself / your dependants due to self-isolation, please email us at finaid@brookes.ac.uk. We will fast-track your enquiry.
    • If you are struggling to pay day-to-day living costs such as rent and food due to loss of part-time work because of Covid-19, please email us at finaid@brookes.ac.uk.
    • If your laptop is slow or broken, please email us at finaid@brookes.ac.uk.

    Every Financial Aid application is assessed individually to ensure that students with the most urgent and immediate needs are supported.


    The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is our top priority. Therefore we have taken the decision to pause face-to-face meetings to discuss Financial Aid, to safeguard our community. 

    You will still be able to access support and guidance from the Financial Aid team by email and Google Hangouts.

    To contact us: please email us at finaid@brookes.ac.uk with a summary of the issue or with your complete Financial Aid application form and all supporting evidence. Please use your Brookes email account. We are receiving a high volume of requests but will respond to all enquiries as quickly as we're able.

    You can find up-to-date information and guidance about the University's response to coronavirus on the Brookes website. 

    Students should be aware that Financial Aid is intended to act as a safety net for those in financial difficulty rather than their main source of income.

    The National Association of Student Money Advisers (NASMA) provide universities across the UK with guidelines to ensure that a common, therefore equitable, assessment process is used.
