Medicine is a demanding course physically, intellectually, emotionally and financially. Medical students frequently need additional and often unexpected support so the Dean’s Fund has been established to help our students in a variety of ways. This year a gift to the Dean’s Fund could:
- Assist with hardship bursaries for students whose family income has been reduced due to Covid-19 or where a student has been unable to take up part-time work to support their studies.
- Support students whose mental health and wellbeing are jeopardised by unexpected illness.
- Other exceptional and unexpected events can cause a student financial hardship which places a student at serious risk of failing to qualify as a result of financial pressures. The Dean’s Fund will provide grants to assist with essential living expenses while students continue to study on their programme.
