Financial support and reimbursement

Contributions to support students enrolled on courses with essential uniform and equipment costs are outlined below, the college will reimburse students up to the below listed amounts. You must supply receipt/s dated within 1 month of your enrolment to Student Support on campus to be reimbursed.

  • Construction & Engineering courses (all levels): overalls (£20); steel toecap boots (£20)

Students on courses in the following curriculum areas have more detailed kit lists depending on their selected pathway:

  • Hair & Beauty
  • Food Academy
  • Engineering

Applications to support with these costs are therefore managed on a case-by-case basis via an application to our Learner Support Fund – Click here to make your application to the Learner Support Fund.

Where a student has purchased items upfront and their funding application is successful, a BACS payment will be made for the appropriate amount to refund the student. Please ensure all receipts are retained to support your application.

If a student is unable to pay for any essential kit or equipment upfront to participate in their course, they can apply for financial support to cover the cost of related kit and/or equipment. Please note that this will not impact your ability to start or undertake your course and the college will provide the necessary support and equipment to help you begin your course. Applications for the College to order items directly from uniform suppliers must be approved by the Head of Student Support.
