We have a contextual admissions policy, so please contact us if you have any queries about our entry requirements.

We’re here to help you get the best out of your education. At Greater Brighton Metropolitan College we want you to achieve your potential. That’s why there is a funding support package available that is specifically for you. If you are a care leaver, additional support is available. To be eligible, you must be under the age of 25 and have been in local authority care for three months or more since the age of 14. For more information and to apply, visit our bursary portal here: or contact the Student Financial Support team direct on 01903 273014 or email

If you're not eligible for the Care Leaver Bursary, you can apply for the Low Household Income Bursary if your income is under £25,000 and are in receipt of a full maintenance loan, we will contact you if you're eligible.

If there is anything that creates a barrier to your learning, we are here to help so please do get in contact.
