When enrolling on a course at Cambridge Regional College, consideration should be given to the costs involved such as travel costs, meals, equipment, books, trips, uniform and childcare. To ensure that finance is not a barrier to learning, funding is available to support learners from a low income household. To be eligible for Financial Support, you will need to demonstrate an annual household income is ordinarily below £25,000. Cambridge Regional College is committed to providing support where it is available and we would actively encourage learners to apply for possible support as soon as they can.
Cambridge Regional College administers these funds at its discretion and in line with its policy and procedure. There is no entitlement to a Bursary. Awards are only ever a contribution to course related compulsory costs and will not necessarily cover all your additional financial needs. Each application will be assessed and if funds are available, an award will be allocated subject to meeting the College’s eligibility criteria. There are several funds available to help different groups of learners and the rules for each are different. Therefore, please be aware that each award is individual to your circumstances and may be different to others. As funds are limited, it may be necessary to close a bursary at any point during the academic year.
If you are aged 19+ at the start of your course and studying an eligible Level 3 or above programme, you must be in receipt of an Advanced Learning Loan to be eligible for support.
