Financial Support

There are various financial support mechanisms available for students who are experiencing financial difficulty whilst
studying at Bury College.

These include

  • 19 + Learner Support Funds
  • 16-19 Bursaries
  • Care to Learn (for young parents aged 16-19)
  • Concessionary Bus Pass and Rochdale Travel Award
  • Bury College Scholarships - Sports and Community

Support can be used to supplement the costs of attending college, eg transport, college equipment, meals in college, books, trips, specialised kits and other course related costs.

There is also a limited amount of funding to support students aged 20+ with childcare costs.

All financial support is subject to eligibility criteria so we urge you to make contact with us in Learner Services at the Millennium Centre to find out what you may be entitled to. Do not delay though as some funding is limited!


19+ Advanced Learning Loan

If you are aged 19 or over, financial support for tuition fees may be available with the government’s new 19+ advanced learning loan.

Loans will be available for learners aged 19 and over, studying courses at Level 3 or over after 1st August 2016.
