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.
The information published here is regarding the financial support available at Brockenhurst for the academic year 2017/18. We hope to replicate this financial support for 2018/19 however we cannot confirm at this time.
Please check our website again after May 1st 2018 by which time we will be able to confirm the financial support available for 2018/19 and have bursary forms for you to print, complete and send in with your evidence of household income.
