It could cost you nothing.

It could cost you nothing to study with us as there’s a range of financial support available, dependent on your age and circumstances. 

If you’re under 19 years old: there is a range of grants and bursaries you can apply for to help cover some of costs of coming to college. Find out more.

If you’re 19 years old and above: loans are available which you don’t pay back if you go on to successfully complete a degree course. Find out more.

I’ve found a new confidence. I felt totally at home at the college and my three teachers were fantastic and really approachable.
