Adult Learners (19+) – Financial Support

Colchester Institute Financial Support

For students with an identified low household income, there may be financial support available. Funds are targeted at course related costs such as travel, childcare, books and equipment.

Adult Learners can apply for funds through the 19+ Bursary Fund, or for students paying their Level 3 tuition fees with an advanced learner loan, through the Advanced Learner Loan Bursary Fund*.

*Awards from the Advanced Learner Loans Bursary Fund can only be made to students who have received an Advanced Learner Loan. If you do not intend to apply for an advanced learner loan or if your application has been unsuccessful you will not be eligible for an award from this particular fund.
