Phase 3 funding extensions

Click here to download the application form to apply for a phase 3 funding extension.

The first round is now open to applications, primarily for students whose funding ends before 31st December 2021 (although see below and on the form for further details about eligibility, and exceptions if you wish to be included in this round but you have a funding end date after this point).  We emphasise that all applications will be judged independently of each other on a case-by-case basis, and so applications to later rounds will not be affected by the number of extensions granted in earlier rounds.

Note for University of York students: the University of York will be running a further round of “phase 2” extensions in 2021, which they are administering. Any eligible York students who require a funding extension should therefore apply to their phase 2 scheme first. Following this, the second round of phase 3 will be open to York students as well as all other ACCE students with the relevant funding end dates.


For this round you may make an application if you have a funding end date before 31st December 2021.

The closing date for the first round of applications is Friday 27 August 2021 at 5pm.

A second round of applications will open in November/December 2021 for students with a funding end date before 30 June 2022.

This is to ensure that students apply within six months of their funding end date. However, as noted in the application form, exceptions may be made. Please contact us at or if you wish to discuss your specific situation at all.
