At Buxton & Leek College, we’re committed to helping students access financial support and make sure you get the funding you are entitled to.
the 16-19 bursary fund
The 16 – 19 Bursary fund is a discretionary and limited source of financial help for students who are aged under 19 and experiencing hardship. Students facing genuine financial difficulties may be awarded a bursary at the discretion of Buxton & Leek College. Students most in need will be eligible to receive a bursary of £1,200 a year. This group includes people in care, care leavers, those claiming Income support/ Universal Credit in their own name and disabled young people in receipt of Employment Support Allowance/ Universal Credit and Disability Living Allowance/ Personal Independence Payment in their own name. Bursary payments issued will be dependent on attendance and behaviour monitoring. For information about eligibility and to download the application form visit our bursary page.
ADVANCED LEARNING LOAN BURSARY
The Advanced Learning Loan Bursary is a discretionary and limited source of financial help for students who are experiencing hardship.There are no guarantees that you will receive money from the fund – not all students who apply will receive an award. You should not therefore base any decisions about coming to College on an assumption that you will receive an award. It may be possible for the College to make a contribution towards childcare cost for students who are in receipt of a state benefit. However, please note that there is no guarantee that this will be possible, or what percentage of the overall cost the College will be able to meet.

From August 1 2016, if you’re aged 19 or over you can study on a course and pay no upfront tuition fees by taking out a Government Advanced Learner Loan. The loan is easy to apply for, doesn’t take your household income into account and doesn’t involve a credit check. It will fund most college courses at Level 3 and above.
