Higher Education Part-Time Courses (HNCs, HNDs and undergraduate degrees)

Financial Assistance & Bursary Information
As a Higher Education 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.
You may be eligible for a loan from the Student Loan Company to pay your student fees directly to the College, and when you start to repay will depend upon your earnings and whether you studied full or part-time.
You may also be eligible for help with living costs through maintenance loans and grants. Further details can also be found on the Student Loan Company website. This money will be paid to you, and can be used to settle any accommodation or transport fees due to the College.
There is also additional support available for students with disabilities, and the College's Learning Support Tutor can help you with the application process.
In its agreement with the Office for Students, the College is committed to offering a range of bursaries dependent upon entry qualifications and/or assessed on income:
- Continuing Moulton College students - if you complete your Level 3 (A-level equivalent) qualification at the College and enrol on to a higher education course, you will receive a bursary of £1,000.
- New entrants with vocational qualifications - if you start a higher education course with an advanced apprenticeship, of NVQ Level 3 as your entry qualification, you will receive a bursary of £1,000.
- New entrants with high grades – if you have BTEC Extended Diploma grades of DDM minimum, or A-levels grades of ABB minimum, you will receive a bursary of £1,000
- Moulton College Bursary - available to full-time students based on a household income assessment. Students with residual household income of less than £25,000 will be eligible for £1,000. Students with a household income of less than £42,600, but more than £25,000 will be eligible for £500.
- £500 Fee Waiver for Part-time students - available to students who are paying their own fees (e.g. not sponsored by employers) with a household income of £30,000 or less.
Most of the above bursaries are paid in two instalments of £500 in December and March in your first year only. Unless indicated, they are not dependent upon income, and a student can only qualify for one of these awards.
Hardship Fund Bursary
A limited discretionary fund has been created to help you if you find yourself in dire financial need which could impact on your ability to continue on your course. Eligibility will be based on an assessment of household income and outgoings. To be eligible to apply for a hardship award applicants must have a residual income of under £25,000 per annum.
Financial Support for students from a Care background
We are committed to accessibility and widening participation for our higher education students. We understand that care leavers can experience barriers to Higher Education and as such this Bursary is offered to our HE students if you are from a Care background.
You could be eligible if you have experienced care at any stage of your life, including those who have been adopted and are below the age of 25. The Bursary is not a loan i.e. you will not need to pay it back, and it can be used for different aspects to support your studies such as I.T. travel and accommodation.
If you think you may qualify as coming from a care background please let us know on your application. We will require you to state what you need for the duration for your course and approx. costs.
