Support for student parents


Financial support is available for you as a student parent if you are having difficulty in paying nursery fees.

There are two funds available, one from the LSE Students Union and one using LSE funds.

Support from the Student Union 

If your child care provision is not based at the LSE Nursery you are eligible to apply for support from LSE Students' Union in the event that you are experiencing financial hardship.

More information on the LSE Students' Union Childcare Fund 

Support for LSE Nursery fees 

For parents whose children are cared for at the LSE Nursery.

Financial support is available if you are experiencing difficulty in paying the nursery fees. This will take the form of a reduction in your Nursery fees.

Please complete an In-Course Support application form to provide details of your income and expenditure and that of any other household member who is supporting your child, and use the space on page 8 to make specific reference to why you need financial support for the nursery fees.

The maximum award is equivalent to 75% of annual nursery fees.
