Student Support


All students who attend Tech City College are eligible to apply for a regular bursary payment.

Most course study items are bought on your behalf from the bursary funds and then issued by your department.  However, it is expected that students purchase their own stationery items.

Payments will be made directly into your bank account monthly in arrears. Students must achieve 100% attendance in each week however consideration may be given to exceptional circumstances.

Carers/parents can submit evidence of additional finance grants or credits they receive to help support their child’s eligibility requirements. These include evidence of: Income Support, Income-based Jobseekers Allowance, Income-related employment and Support Allowance, Support under V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1990, The guarantee element of Statement Pension Credit, Child Tax Credit gross income (maximum income limit), Working Tax Credit.

If you have any additional support needs whilst at college you may be entitled to support towards this from bursary funds.  Please advise the Admissions Officer of your requirements prior to commencing your course.

All students are expected to have set up their own bank account prior to the start of the academic year to ensure payments are made promptly. (Please bring your bank statement with you to enrolment.)
