Financial Assistance & Bursary Information

16-19 Bursary

If you are a Further Education student under the age of 19 on 31 August of the year your full time course starts, you can get access to financial support for essential course related costs such as transport, accommodation, course uniform/PPE or childcare. The funding is available if you are from a low income family, i.e. annual household income of £30,000 or less.

In addition, College meals are free if you are on one of a number of listed state benefits including Income Support.

To access this funding, you will need to apply to our Student Services team.

  • A young person in care, including unaccompanied asylum-seeking children
  • A young care leaver
  • A young person getting Income Support or the equivalent Universal Credit (UC) in their own right
  • A young person getting either Disability Living Allowance (or the new Personal Independence Payments) and Employment Support Allowance (ESA) (or Universal Credit as a replacement for ESA) in their own right.

Charitable Trust Bursaries

We are very fortunate that two independent charitable trusts - Thomas Harrison Trust and Sir Thomas White Charity - provide financial support to allow students experiencing financial difficulties to attend College. Trustees are willing to consider applications from any student undertaking a full-time FE course here at Moulton.

You will be sent an application form with your course joining instructions and should complete and return it at that stage.
