In 2014 the College was able to offer the following bursaries to support many students:

Vulnerable Learner Bursaries

These were worth £1,200 in addition to Free School Meals and were available to young people in care or who were care leavers or who were in receipt of certain state benefits.

Core Bursaries

Worth up to £10 per week, plus Free School Meals for those young people whose parents/carers receive certain benefits or where family income is below £16,190. Many students in this category will also receive a Travel Bursary also worth up to £10 per week.

Mainstream Bursaries

These are for those whose family income is between £16,191 and £21,000 per year. These are worth up to £200 per year.

PETT Bursaries

In 2012 we set up our own Charitable Trust, Priestley Education and Training Trust (PETT) with the aim to raise funds to support those students in most need. Students can apply for a PETT Bursary to help them through short term financial hardship.

Bursaries for 2015

Details of the 2015 bursaries will be published in June 2015 once the level of Government funding has been confirmed and applications for support can be made in time for Registration. If you have any questions and/or concerns about financial support please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions Team or Student Services.
