Bursaries & Financial Support

Bursaries & Financial Support

We understand that further education may involve some extra expense. There are a number of ways to access help with these costs.

  • Ensure that your family is accessing all the state benefits they are entitled to, including Child Benefits.
  • Check with your Local Authority to see if they will assist with travel costs (now mainly aimed at students with special needs).
  • Check if there is help available from local charities or trust funds.
  • Apply to our College Bursary Fund (see below).
