We are sorry, but we cannot accept any further applications for support for the 2015/16 academic year.  If you will be studying in 2016/17 you can apply to us from 1st February 2016.

If you have a physical or sensory disability and are in post-16 education, you can apply to us for help with additional disability-related costs that are not fully provided for you from available statutory funding.

You can apply for help with funding such things as:

  • Human help – sign language interpreters and people to take notes
  • Computer equipment
  • Adapted or additional accommodation
  • Travel costs
  • Mobility equipment
  • Other costs which relate solely to disability

We will not usually meet expenses that have to be borne by all students, such as tuition fees or standard living and accommodation costs (but we will occasionally help with tuition fees if a student can provide justification that their need is directly related to their disability).
