Help with transport costs
All Further Education students can apply for a College bursary for help with travel costs if they live three miles or more from the College. Applications are assessed based on distance from home to College as well as household income.
Local councils also offer travel funding to students aged 16-18 that fit their criteria. Applications start from April and each council will have their own closing date to ensure any awards can start promptly in September.
