Please note that the amount of the Bursary payments are entirely dependent upon the number of applications received and the funds available. In line with the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) best practice the majority of payments will be made in kind e.g. subsidised meals, transport, trips & visits, books & equipment, print credits etc. The College reserves the right to withhold Bursary payment for non-compliance with the Student Charter. Any cash payments will be paid directly to the student’s bank account.
