The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.

The student services team is here to help you with any aspect of college you want to discuss. We have student services staff based on all of our campuses, so it is easy for you to access any type of advice and support that you want. We can provide you with support on a one-to-one basis as regularly as you want. This support could be from finding accommodation, to discussing how to fund coming to college, progression on from your course, or emotional and/or academic support, to assist you to enjoy college and gain your qualifications.

We held the Buttle UK Quality Mark, and really want to make sure that being at college is a great experience for you, so please come in and see us if we can help you in any way. We work with Carolina Trust to provide a care experienced drop in on a monthly basis; please get in touch with Sarah to find out more.

The student services team is here to help you with any questions you may have about funding your college course. Please come in to the advice centre on your campus, or the closest one to where you live, and we can help you complete your funding application (EMA, bursary, SAAS, financial assistance).

We will also find out what is the best funding option for you, as everyone's situation can be different. We want to ensure that financial worries are not something that puts you off coming to College, remaining on your course or attending your graduation ceremony etc.

If you require help with childcare funds, or help with your housing, we can also advise you on the college funds or other welfare benefits that could be available to you.
