Financial Support

There are a range of ways we can support Higher Education students financially at the College. These are spelt out in our Access Agreement ("Download).

We are keen to support students from non-traditional backgrounds to access and stay in HE. These include people who are the first in family to enter HE, those who live in certain postcodes, those who want to be in HE with non-traditional qualifications, mature students, and those facing other barriers.

As courses start all students will be written to with the full details of our Access Agreement. An application form will be included for people to fill in. There will be a deadline for completion and all applications will be reviewed by an independent panel. We will try and offer financial support to as many students as possible that qualify.
