19+ Bursary Funds
Financial assistance is also available in the form of bursary funds for students who are aged 19 and over. The sum of money that can be provided does depend on your circumstances, but it can help to pay for essential student resources such as course materials, equipment or exam fees.
These loans are available to students completing courses at level 3, recipients must be aged over 24 and should be doing courses that started on or after 1st August 2014. The Government provides these funds and they do not need to be repaid until the students who receive them earn over £21,000 per year.
