Will you support a student facing real financial hardship?

“Internships have been cancelled and part-time jobs have closed. That will make paying rent much harder. Without help a lot of students will be struggling.”

– Karam Agha, BSc (Hons) Computer Science

Right now, Manchester students are facing hardship like never before. Some have lost the part-time work they rely on. Their summer jobs and internships have been cancelled. They’re desperately worried about the months ahead.

Others are facing costs they could never have budgeted for. Many international students are still in Manchester, facing the uncertainty of a prolonged stay in the UK.

By making a gift to this special appeal, you’ll bring relief to students who are really worried about making ends meet.

Supporting the students who need it most

One in four Manchester undergraduates comes from a low-income background. These students have worked hard – often against the odds – to secure a place at the University.

Sadly these students are most likely to be left in financial hardship as a result of the pandemic. They’re more likely to rely on part-time work to cover their living costs. And they’re least able to fall back on financial support from their families.

Your gift today will provide urgent support to a student facing real financial hardship, through no fault of their own.

Helping struggling students continue at Manchester

Over the coming months, many more students will be worrying about their finances. Some might even be forced to abandon their dream of a Manchester education.

Your gift will support students now and in the months ahead – ensuring that no Manchester student is left with nowhere to turn.

Your support will help a struggling student continue their education and fulfil their potential.

We’ve reached £1 million!

Thanks to the incredible support of our generous community, our emergency fund has now surpassed £1 million.

But we still need your help to make sure no Manchester student is left struggling. Every gift we receive will increase the number of students we're able to help – now and in the months ahead.

So please give what you can, and show your support for Manchester students today.

Thank you
