Funding and Finance

The fees for 2024-25 full-time Degree courses are £7,500. Any proposals will be in line with Consumer Price Index, our Fee Policy, and Government guidelines and requirements. Please note Foundation Degrees are qualifications in their own right and students progressing from a Foundation Degree to a top-up year are subject to a new fee. It can be difficult to navigate through the maze of Higher Education fees, especially if you’re a mature student or have a family to look after. We are on hand to give information, advice, and guidance and can help you find the best help available. We also have a means-tested College bursary available to help students with study and living costs. Please contact our Customer Services Team on 01756 791 411 if you feel you need financial help with your course

Widening Participation Bursary

Craven College strives to do all it can so that no eligible student has to withdraw from their course due to lack of financial support. The Widening Participation Bursary Fund is used to widen access to and remove financial barriers to participation in Higher Education wherever possible.

The bursary scheme is open to all full and part-time UK and EU students who commenced their studies after 1 September 2016 on the following programmes:

  • Undergraduate Honours Degrees (including Top-ups)
  • Foundation Degrees
  • Higher Nationals – Certificates and Diplomas
  • Initial Teacher Training qualifications

The Bursary is means-tested, therefore, students will be required to provide evidence of their household income.

To apply for the Widening Participation Bursary, please register through our online portal
