Students can apply for financial help from the college’s bursary scheme to help with the costs of studying at college. Priority support will be given to young people in care, care leavers, young people in receipt of income support and disabled young people receiving employment support allowance or disability allowance. However, all students from low income households that meet the criteria will be awarded bursary support.
You may also be able to get help towards the cost of travelling to college through the Transport for London student Oyster photo card scheme.
Students can apply for free meals. This would allow students to choose a healthy, free meal every day in college and will be made available for all eligible students from September 2014. Entitlement is pre-loaded on to your student ID card at the time you enrol on to your course.
