If you are facing financial hardship, please see one of our Student Advisers. They can offer advice on the support that may be available to you as a student of Buxton and Leek College. This support may be limited to students studying certain subjects, living in certain areas, or of a specific age group. If you qualify in some way, you may be eligible for:
- A bursary – which you wouldn’t have to pay back
- A loan – which you would have to pay back
- A charitable trust to purchase goods on your behalf
Most students on apprenticeship programmes, or any waged training, are unfortunately not eligible for Bursary Funding from the College.
16-24 CARE LEAVERS BURSARY
The £1,000 bursary will be paid once to each care leaver in the eligible age range, when they start an Apprenticeship after 1 August 2018. The extra financial support will be for those aged 16-24 and help them in the first year of their Apprenticeship as learners transition into the workplace for their practical studies.
Email our Student Money and Rights Adviser on E: Studentmoneyadviceblc@derby.ac.uk for further information.

Should you require support with anything mentioned on these pages, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I offer drop ins and appointments for students across both campuses and work alongside the Learner Journey Team to help ensure funding is not a barrier to participation whilst studying with us.
