DMU Support Fund
The DMU Support Fund has now closed for the 2019/20 academic year.
The DMU Support Fund is aimed at home students who have taken out all funding they are entitled to, but may require extra financial support. As a part-time student this may include getting income from work. If you are not in employment, then you will need to ensure you have taken out all benefits you are entitled to prior to applying.

As a part-time student, you may be able to claim income-related benefits. Any fee grant or course grant you receive will not be classed as income when calculating your entitlement.
