Financial Support


Studying at sixth form college, can be expensive with buying lunch, travel and books, but you might be able to receive financial support during your time at college.

The 16 - 19 Bursary fund provides financial support to help students overcome the specific financial barriers they may face when remaining in education.

There are 2 types of 16 - 19 bursaries:

  • Bursaries for defined vulnerable students of up to £1200 a year.
  • Discretionary bursaries which we award to students based on the funding rules in the guidance below.

When applying for the bursary fund you will need to ensure you have opened a bank account, as funds need to be deposited into an account in your name only and not a parent/guardian. 

Check out the application guidance below and complete the form if you feel you qualify for the additional financial support on offer.
