How are you paying for you course?
- see what grants and bursaries are available for adult learners
Adult learners can apply for grants and bursaries to help pay for courses and training. Usually, you don’t have to pay this money back.
For most grants and bursaries you apply directly to the organisation that gives them out. They’ll have an application form and will be able to tell you if you qualify.
If you’re a parent, you might also be able to get help with childcare costs while you study [external website].
