19+ Years

19+ Discretionary Learner Support/Advanced Learning Loans Bursary

This fund is to support eligible students on courses funded by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA). The fund provides support to students aged 19 years and over who are experiencing financial hardship.

It can help to meet the costs associated with attending College. You can apply for assistance with meals, equipment, uniform, student visits, childcare, DBS checks, registration fees and exam fees, which are required for your course. This is pro rata for part-time students.

The 19+ Advanced Learning Loan Bursary is for students who have applied for, and been awarded with, an Advanced Learning Loan.

Please note that it is your responsibility to contact the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) if necessary as financial support may affect your eligibility for some benefits.
