Bursaries are discretionary grants available from us to help support a person in education beyond the statutory school leaving age of 16.

The award is means tested and is conditional on a student having satisfactory attendance, conduct and progress. Funding is only available for certain courses in accordance with our bursary policy. 

No funding is available for educational establishments outwith the UK.

Subject to exceptions, anyone who meets the residential requirements and who wants to do a course which is eligible for bursary support should apply.

Bursaries will normally be given for approved full-time courses up to, but not including, HNC level or HNC equivalent level.
