Financial help for students
We understand that financial matters are an important consideration for our students and that everyone’s circumstances are different.
We believe that financial constraints alone should never be enough to prevent a student from studying and so we will work with you to find out what support you may be entitled to and help you to access any funding available.
The Learning Support Grant & Bursary
The Learning Support Grant is the name we have given to our discretionary learner support scheme and is administered by the college.
This grant can provide you with:
help with travel costs
help with equipment, books or resources costs
contribution towards childcare costs
help to pay UCAS admin fees
contribution towards enrichment activities linked to your course.
You can apply online (via online portal) for the Learning Support Grant.
We have tried to make applying as simple as possible, but it will involve filling in online forms, providing evidence and telling us about your financial situation. We will then make an assessment based on your personal circumstances.
The Learning Support Grant may still be available to successful applicants of the 19+ Advanced Learning Loan if the total household income is below £32,000.
