The Learner Support Fund

If you need financial help for your studies we have a Learner Support Fund from which you may be able to get help with things like course fees, books, materials, travel, and childcare costs. The fund is means tested, and certain other criteria may apply. To apply, please call into the Student Services office, to discuss what financial help may be available with one of our Advice and Guidance Workers or call:

Higher Education

Money has been given to the College from the Government to financially support both part-time and full-time Higher Education students, this is called the "Access to Learning Fund. (ALF)" Payments do not usually need to be repaid and can be used to cover some of the additional costs of study. Before asking for help from the ALF you should have explored all other available sources of financial support. Certain criteria apply, to discuss this further please make an appointment to speak to a Senior Student Advisor.

Student Services, Swanswell South on 024 7679 1561.

Other sources of funding

You may be eligible for additional funding and support from a range of local organisations, such as local charities. For more information, please call into the Student Services office or call 024 7679 1561.
