Financial assistance

A discount is available for students from low-income backgrounds as determined by data from Student Finance England. NTU Sport will check your eligibility to receive this discount, which will be determined by the household income information that either you or your legal guardians shared with Student Finance England.

Please visit one of our NTU Sport receptions, where a member of the team will be able to discuss the options available with you.

Please note that this is information submitted to Student Finance England, not information gathered by Nottingham Trent University. If either you or your legal guardians have chosen not to allow this information to be shared with us, we won't be able to check your eligibility to receive a discount, and it will be assumed that the household income provided does not fall within the necessary threshold.

The Sports Hardship Fund

NTU Sport recognises that the cost of equipment, trips or any other costs of sports clubs can be prohibitively expensive for some students. The Sport Hardship Fund has been created to support those students who wouldn't otherwise be able to participate in their chosen sport or activity due to the cost.Students can apply for up to £100 per academic year and only one grant will be awarded to a student in an academic year. NTU Sport has a limited amount of money to give out each year so please note that even if an application is successful, it may not be possible to award the full amount requested.

Applications must:

  • Be eligible for an NTU Bursary
  • Be submitted by the individual NTU students, not on their behalf
  • Apply for funding to enable their participation in an NTU Sports Club e.g. club fees, trip costs or the purchase of equipment or kit specifically required for the activity
  • Show evidence of financial hardship and being unable to participate without the assistance of the Sport Hardship Fund

All applicants will receive a decision by email giving the reason why the application was approved or rejected 2 weeks after the deadline (at the latest).
