Sixth Form Students and Apprentices
Whatever route you are taking – A Levels, Vocational study, T Levels or a Themis Apprenticeship – our friendly, knowledgeable Student Services advisors are here to help you with any financial queries you may have. Ask for advice and guidance on how you can get free or subsidised meals in College, transport, trips and study materials depending on your household income (subject to conditions).
‘Looked-after’ individual, a care leaver or living independently
If you’re classed as a ‘looked-after’ individual, a care leaver or are living independently, you may also be able to apply for an additional bursary to help cover any costs at College (subject to conditions).
All students travelling to College by bus can apply for discounted travel passes and – on 100% attendance – can get the costs of their termly pass reimbursed. We can also signpost Themis Apprentices to access discounted bus travel via Lancashire County Council.
Those choosing to travel to College by bicycle (and take advantage of free bicycle storage) may also be eligible to hire cycles at heavily discounted rates.
At Burnley College, we understand that having access to high-quality digital equipment is important in helping you make the most of your studies. That’s why we can offer great discounts and flexible repayment plans on the purchase of a range of suitable IT equipment which will help you over your current studies and beyond.
Throughout your time at Burnley College, we will also provide you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage your own money – now and in future. From household budgeting to navigating Student Finance, our Student Services advisors will give you the tools to take control of your finances.
