Thinking of going to college or uni?
Find out what support is available to students.
If you’re applying for college or uni, make sure you apply early, as courses can fill up fast. Funding might also be available, depending on your income and living situation, and student discount can mean you save on shopping, leisure activities and days out.
Funding opportunities include Educational Maintenance Allowance (for 16-19 year olds in full-time education), college bursaries and student grants and loans. ILAs (Individual Learning Account) can be used to cover the cost of some training courses, as long as you’re aged 16+ and earning less than £22,000 a year.
