As you embark on this important journey toward your academic and professional goals, we understand that finances can be a concern. That’s why we are dedicated to offering a variety of financial support options to assist you during your time as a learner here.

Whether you are aiming to enter the workforce, pursue an apprenticeship, or continue your education at university, we are here to ensure that financial barriers do not stand in the way of your ambitions. At Buxton & Leek College, you can focus on excelling in your studies and enjoying your college experience, while we take care of the financial details.

Explore our links below to find out more about the different types of financial support available and determine what you may be eligible for.


Apprenticeships at Buxton & Leek College are primarily funded through government and employer contributions, which means students typically are not required to pay tuition fees. However, if you have any questions or need clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact our Fees and Finance Team.


One of the major advantages of pursuing an apprenticeship is the opportunity to earn while you learn. You’ll gain invaluable industry experience and achieve a qualification simultaneously, all while receiving a regular wage. While it’s true that apprentices are not currently eligible for the College Bursary administered through PayMyStudent, other funding schemes may be available to help you manage the additional costs associated with your studies, depending on your eligibility.
