The fund will provide up to £2 million from existing budgets to allow affected legitimate students to meet additional costs they may incur by moving to another institution. The fund went live on 1 October 2012 and at the moment it is too early to say what the overall level of demand will be. Initial data from the Higher Education Funding Council for England show that, as of 3 October 2012, there had been 53 applications to the fund.
