Financial Support for Adult Students

Everyone has different needs, not only around learning but also in the support needed to come to college. If you’re aged 19 or over and on a further education course with us, there is financial help available.
Click on the boxes below to find out more.

If your household income is less than £25,000 per year, you will be eligible for food from any College café to the value of £5.75 for each day you attend college.



You may be able to access a student fund for help towards the cost of books and equipment related to your studies. To apply for this fund:

  • Your household income must be less than £25,000 per year before your application can be considered (evidence to be provided).
  • You must have your own bank account and be able to provide the details to receive a payment from the fund.

Please note: This support is only available for courses at level 2 and above.


You can apply for help with travel if you live 1.5 miles from the college centre where your classes/placement are held.


  • You must be enrolled on a course of at least 12 weeks in length for a minimum of 6 hours a week.


  • You must have a household income up to £25,000

Please note:

  • In the event that you lose your pass, you will be required to pay £25 for a replacement pass to be issued. Further replacements can be issued but at the full cost of the pass.

Please note: Termly rail passes will only be renewed if you meet the 90% attendance requirement.


If you study with us and decide to progress onto higher education, we’ll support you with this by refunding any UCAS fees you incur when making your application.
