Provide a lifeline for students
The end of term is usually a time of celebration. However, in the past two weeks life on campus has been transformed, with crowded lecture theatres replaced by online classes. The speed with which students have adapted, and in many cases sought ways to support their local communities, has been incredible. However, for many this will be a period of great uncertainty and anxiety, made worse by financial concerns.
In the past week we have seen a significant increase in applications to the Hardship Fund, and anticipate this continuing for the foreseeable future. Many of our students combine their studies with part time work, and now find themselves unemployed and struggling to pay their bills. Others have been unable to make the move to online learning, as they either don’t own a computer or live in a home without an internet connection.
In the weeks ahead we will be working hard to ensure that all of our students are supported and no-one is disadvantaged. However, we know we can do more with your support.
King’s College London. It’s our deeds that define us.
‘When I received funding it was such a relief, I did really need the money just to pay for food and living expenses. To people who have so generously donated I would just like to say thank you so much for giving students the opportunity to study. There are so many young people out there who are striving to make it despite the number of hurdles trying to bring them down. Without you they wouldn’t even have a chance.’
Charlotte, Final Year Mental Health Nursing student
