Student Finance

Elliott Hudson College will not charge fees for tuition or examination entry (except for re-sits). There are no charges for course materials, although students are expected to provide their own stationery and any specialist clothing /equipment. Course books may be bought from subject teachers however subjects will also loan textbooks to students in return for a deposit. In the case of field trips, a contribution from the student to cover board and lodging, but excluding tuition and travel, will be expected. Some optional activities (e.g. enrichment, theatre trips, exchange visits, etc.) may have an associated cost; this will be notified in advance of the event.Some applicants might not be supported by government funding for education (e.g. non-UK or EU passport holders recently arrived in the area): in these cases we do reserve the right to charge full fees for the course.

If your family is on a low income or you encounter any financial difficulties in special circumstances, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the college’s Student Bursary Fund.

Student Bursary Fund

The Student Bursary Fund aims to support students who face the greatest financial barriers to continuing in education. If you are in need of some financial support and you fall into one of the groups listed below, you may be able to benefit from the scheme.

Group 1 Group 2 Group 3

Any student who is:

  • in care
  • a care leaver
  • in receipt of Income Support or Universal Credit
  • in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (or Personal Independence Payments) and Employment Support Allowance
Any student living in a household where the gross annual income is low. * Any student who has an extreme financial problem and a short term specific educational or independent living cost which they cannot meet.
These students will be entitled to a regular payment as well as help towards the cost of transport, meals, essential books, equipment and trips. * Further information regarding income levels and how to apply will be available at a later date.

These students can request support from the fund.

This will be dependent on the number of applications received and the funds available.

In addition to meeting the criteria outlined in one of the groups above, you must:

• be enrolled on a full time programme of study at Elliott Hudson College

• be under 19 years of age on the 31st August 2015

• satisfy residency criteria

• have a bank or building society account in your own name in order to receive any payment

We would encourage any student who is unsure as to whether they are eligible to speak to their Alliance Leader.  Students wishing to apply for support from the Student Bursary Fund should complete an application form.  Application forms will be available on the college website from August 2015.
