Student Services at Craven College can provide help and advice on funding your course and the grants and loans available to you.
The Government will loan any eligible student the money to pay the university or college tuition costs (at the time of going to print). (Students under 18 years of age will not be eligible for a Student Loan). Students from families with incomes of up to £25,000 will be entitled to a maintenance grant of up to £3,354 and those from families with incomes up to £42,600 will be entitled to a partial grant. Maintenance loans will be available to all eligible full-time students, irrespective of income. Further information about what is available and how to apply will be available on www.direct.gov.uk or from Student Finance England: 0845 300 50 90.
Students on a part-time higher education course have access to loans for tuition costs and will not have to pay up-front, as long as it’s their first Degree and they are studying for at least 25% of a full-time programme. Further information about what is available and how to apply will be available via www.direct.gov.uk or from Student Finance England: 0845 300 50 90.
The Disabled Students’ Allowance is a grant to help with the extra costs a full or part-time student may face as the direct result of a disability (including an ongoing health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia). The amount you can get isn’t affected by your household income, and the allowances do not have to be repaid.
If you get into financial difficulties while studying, or find yourself facing extra costs in completing your course, then help may be available from the College’s or our partner university’s Access to Learning Fund. You should apply to Student Services on 01756 693 841.

All Foundation Degree and Degree courses are validated by one of our partner universities and this will be reflected on your qualification certificate at the end of the course. In addition, by studying at College, you may be able to save on expensive accommodation.
