Financial Assistance & Bursary Information

As a 19+ student, you will be responsible for funding both your course fees and any related costs such as transport and accommodation. This can be daunting, but there are a range of loans and bursaries, detailed below, available to help you meet these costs.

Advanced Learner Loans

To support the completion of Level 3 and Level 4 courses of Further Education for students aged 19 or over on the start date of the course, student loans are available. These loans are managed by Student Finance England (SFE), are not means tested, and do not need to be paid back until you earn over £21,000 per annum. They can be used as an alternative to paying the fees yourself as the SFE will pay the fees directly to the College.

The availability of loans at Level 3 does not replace your legal entitlement to full funding for a first full Level 3. Applications for fee remission will be considered at the time of enrolment onto the course.

19+ Bursary

As a 19+ learner you can access bursary funds to support essential course related costs such as course fees (including exam and registration costs), transport, accommodation, course uniform/PPE and childcare. The funding is available if you are from a low income family, i.e. annual household income of £28,000 or less.

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

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.

Funding for stonemasonry and carpentry students

If you are aged 19 or over and wanting to study Stonemasonry or Carpentry, you may be eligible for a bursary from the Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI). The project is a Heritage Lottery funded scheme that enables the Borough Council of Wellingborough to provide funding for training and tools.

The bursary is for up to £500 to help pay for training at Moulton or an alternate supplier and up to £100 to help with tools. The bursary can be used to fund either full time courses or the cost of short courses to build heritage skills.

Completed applications should be sent directly to THI, by either:
