This article is for international students facing financial hardship during their studies, usually as a result of unforeseen circumstances. 
Unlike students from the UK, you will not be eligible for any statutory funding from the UK government, so you may need to explore alternative sources of funding. This may include funding from your home government, as some countries offer loans and grants to students, including those overseas.
What financial support can I access at King's? 
International students at King's can apply for:
  • The King's Financial Aid fund: (UG and PGT students) Find out more information on how to apply on our Student funding webpages.
