HE Fees & Funding

One of the benefits of studying at Bridgwater College is that the fees are generally lower than those charged by most universities, while courses are still delivered in high quality facilities and in small personal groups.

Courses starting from September 2016

For students new to higher education from September 2016 there will be a Tuition Fee Loan and a Maintenance Loan available to eligible applicants. There are additional support packages available for those with other circumstances including those with dependents or who are disabled.  Applications may be made online at direct.gov.uk from Spring 2016. You will need to have a bank account as grants and maintenance loans are paid directly into your account by the Student Loans Company Ltd. You will be asked to provide evidence of any claims you make.

Students who do not apply before the deadline dates might not receive their loan in time for the start of their course. www.gov.uk/student-finance
