Bursaries and financial support
We realise that Further Education may involve some extra expense and that you may wish to reach out for additional financial support.
There are a number of ways to access help with costs, such as:
- Ensuring your family accesses all the state support to which you are entitled.
- Checking with your local authority to find out if they will assist with travel costs.
- Assessing whether there is help available from charities or trust funds. Click here to find out more.
- Appling to our College Bursary Fund (see below).
Please see our travel page for the most cost-effective way to reach Brockenhurst College.
