Advanced Learner Loan

If you are required to pay for your course you will be able to apply for the Advanced Learner Loan from the Student Loans Company. It is essential that you apply for your loan as soon as possible to ensure that it is in place for enrolment which takes place at the end of August. The application process is completed online and can take only a couple of days to be processed if you have a valid passport. If you are required to send any documentation to the Student Loans Company it can take up to 12 weeks to be processed. If your loan is not approved you will be unable to finalise your enrolment, however, as long as a loan is in process we will allow you to attend as a visitor for a short period.

Paying for food and drinks on campus – Upay – our new payment system

From September 2024, you will be able to pay for your school meals with your College ID badge, simply swipe your badge at the tills!

Students with free school meal eligibility will automatically have their ‘free school meal’ balance topped up to their College ID badge, making it easier and quicker to pay for your meals on campus.

Students who do not qualify for free school meals will also be able to pay for meals this way, simply download the Upay app and add credit to your account. Further details will be given when you enrol.

Cash and bank card are still accepted for any food/drink purchase.
