Support is available to students that qualify for financial assistance. It's money to help with practical matters like travel, childcare and other costs. In addition, many students that receive free meals at school can have lunch free, here at college.
Supporting our full-time students
We give our students everything they need to get started on their course and we won’t surprise you with any hidden costs. Should students need and qualify for financial support, we have bursaries and a Learner Support Fund available to help. Please ask about this when applying.

Supporting our Higher Education students
Full and part-time HE students are eligible for a loan to cover the costs of the tuition fees. Fees won’t be charged upfront and students only start to repay this – in manageable monthly amounts at low interest rates – once you’re working and are earning over £21,000 a year. More information about HE loans can be found on Student Finance England.
Advanced Learning Loans
If aged 19 or older and thinking of returning to education to study at Level 3 qualification or above, students can apply for an Advanced Learning Loan to help with the cost of the college course. More information about the loans, eligibility and how to apply can be found on Student Finance England, Advanced learning loans.
