If you’re an Overseas or European Student from a low-income household, you’ll be pleased to hear that King’s College London is offering the International Hardship Fund to eligible international students in the UK.
Being a college student in a foreign country can be very expensive. Especially, if the value of your local currency is lower than that of the study country.
Kings College London has recognized this difficulty and has found it necessary to help international and European students who started studying but encountered unforeseen circumstances.
Rather than allow them to drop out, they have decided to help the students.
In this post, we have simplified the IHF and brought all the requirements for your reading pleasure. Please do well to apply after reading as that is what we aim to achieve; helping you get a stress-free education in the UK.
What is the International Hardship Fund (IHF)?
IHF is a set of limited funds that help European and international students who have financial difficulties.
This funding is sponsored by Kings College London.
And it’s for undergraduate students.
Basically, the fund covers tuition fees and living costs for as long as you are studying.
For an international student, the UKVI has indicated that students will need around £1,265 for their living costs in each month of their study. Then your tuition cost.
This cost of living will now vary by individual.
If difficulties arise, we mean financial issues, then you should contact the Office of Student Finance or your personal tutor to discuss the situation.
The program is open to students from all over the world who are experiencing financial difficulties and wish to continue their studies in the UK.
As a result, financing is open throughout the year once the fund is available.
How much is the scholarship worth?
The International Hardship Fund varies and depends on the needs of the student.
Your need as a student will determine the amount you will be given.
To qualify for the International Hardship Fund 2021, applicants must meet the following:
