Our learner support fund is used to provide financial help to students whose access to, or completion of, education might be threatened by lack of finance.

The fund will be open for applications for the following year from 1st July each year. Application forms are available in paper format from customer services, and electronic format on our website.

Applications are accepted from eligible students from the 1st July every year until the appropriate deadline date (see application forms), or until funds run out. However, applications cannot be accepted unless a student is fully enrolled.

Funding is not guaranteed by the acceptance of an application form. There are four types of funding available, and more information can be found at:
