Financial support

We understand that for many learners money can be a barrier to successful study. Although we’re not able to provide any direct financial support, we have an excellent record of helping learners apply for funds to cover:

  • fees
  • equipment
  • course materials

Contact us for help

Please contact us if you do not qualify for free courses but you: 

  • are a refugee 
  • are an asylum seeker  
  • have another immigration status 
  • live outside of London within the UK 

Sometimes we’re able to make further checks to see if you’re able to study our free courses. 

You’ll need to provide evidence of eligibility for our free courses. We’ll let you know how you can do this once you’ve applied for a course.
