Funding for continuing part-time students

Additional Fee Support Scheme

The Additional Fee Support Scheme (AFSS) is for low income part-time undergraduate students where statutory fee support is insufficient to meet the full tuition fee, which could prevent the student from accessing and remaining in Higher Education because of financial hardship:

  • who started their course before 1 September 2012
  • or transferred from another course 
  • or are studying a course 'end on' and in receipt of the full fee grant
