Advanced Student Loans Bursary Policy Statement (August 2022)

Published:

The purpose of the Advanced Learner Loan Bursary is to support students over the age of 19 to continue in education and training by providing a contribution towards the costs of attending College such as transport, food, equipment, and other course related costs, also childcare for those over 20 years of age.

NOTE: When assessing applications, we will prioritise vulnerable groups and disadvantaged students. We have limited funds available and therefore the submission of an application does not automatically guarantee a bursary.
