Studying shouldn’t put a strain on finances – take a look at the comprehensive financial support service available.

Hands putting money in piggybank

At Middlesbrough College, we pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive financial support service.

We know that studying can put a strain on finances, which is why our financial support team are on hand to offer expert advice when it comes to the funding streams available to students, whatever their age. From assistance with childcare to a comprehensive travel package, you can rest assured that you are joining a College that has your needs in mind.

Financial Support for 16-18

Learners aged between 16-18 will not be required to pay for their studies, and Middlesbrough College offers a range of services designed to support you through your studies.

Further information on bursaries for students starting September 2024 will be updated shortly.

If you are currently receiving free school meals, this will continue at college. All full-time students also receive 10% discount off all food. There are currently six cafes located within the College campus catering for a range of dietary requirements.

You may be able to receive help with equipment, uniform and/or kit costs and mandatory residentials depending on your personal circumstances.

Care to Learn provides financial support to parents under the age of 20 with the costs of childcare to ensure they are able to continue in education.

All full-time students can access free bus travel to and from College, and reimbursed train travel from selected stations.

Certain categories of full-time students can apply for additional help from the social security system.
