Student Finance

Short Term Loans

The University can lend students, who are suffering from financial difficulty, an amount of money to help with their immediate essential living costs, such as food and essential travel.

The University can offer you one or two types of loan, depending on your circumstances.

Emergency Short Term Loans (ESTL), from the Access to Learning Fund, are available to Home UK students who have made their application to Student Finance England, but who have yet to receive their first instalment of their funding.

Kent Emergency Student Loans (KESL) are available to all undergraduate and postgraduate, Home, EU or International, full time or part time students, who find themselves in temporary financial difficulties.
