How to Apply


To apply for your Further Education EMA, Bursary, Childcare or Discretionary Hardship Funds you must first have:

  • Accepted your unconditional offer of a place on the course
  • Received an e-mail with your login and password

You can also read our guides for help with Accessing the Student Hub Guide or Uploading Documents to Your Student Funding Application.

Once you have completed your application to the college for funding you will be able to track its progress through your online HUB account and access any letters about your award. Your HUB account will be your central point for your college life, offering you many services and tools including funding. If an award has been made, then the award letter will tell you how much you have been awarded and when the payments will be made. You will have a separate letter for each fund. EMA, Bursary, Childcare and Discretionary payments are made fortnightly in arrears. Please note EMA, travel and childcare payments are NOT paid for college holidays.

Please be aware that to receive any kind of funding you will be required to submit documentary evidence to support your application and that it can take up to 4 weeks from the date of receipt of the final piece of documentary evidence requested to process your application, therefore you should make allowances for this when you begin your course.
