Enrolment slides 12 13

  1. 1. Funding- FE Students• If you are studying full-time, you will either be applying online for a college bursary/EMA, or applying online to SAAS for a student loan. This depends on the level of course you are studying.• Whichever route applies to you this will be your main source of income as a student. Most students find that they need to take on part-time work to make ends meet (See our Jobzone section for help with this).• There is additional funding available from college, called the Student Discretionary Fund. If you find yourself in financial difficulties come along to one of our Money Matters drop-ins to see if we can help. Drop-ins are held regularly in Learner Services.
