OVERVIEW

BUILT FOR AFFORDABILITY

In this section you will find details of various funds available to either new or continuing students, based on financial need and individual circumstances.

In addition to the UCEM support detailed below, the RICS benevolent charity, LionHeart, has recently started to support surveying apprentices and some students. As a result, they have launched a student grant programme, aimed at helping surveying students from poorer backgrounds in the final year of a qualifying degree programme take their first steps into the profession. Eligible students who are in receipt of a full maintenance loan will be able to apply to LionHeart to cover the costs of buying suitable interview wear and travel to interviews or assessments, where travel costs are not otherwise reimbursed by the recruiting firm.
