Enrolment update: Access to the bursary system is available during year 12 enrolment by clicking on the ‘Bursary and Concessions’  link in the enrolment form.

Students will need to apply for bursary in each year of their course.  Applications are accepted throughout the year and can be made here;
Please remember that you will need to upload evidence of household income on the form.  All requests for access to bursary will be made via this system throughout the year,  so students will need to register in their own name in order to make these requests.  If parents wish to submit evidence directly to the college rather than through their young person’s account,  then they should do so to office@s6c.mlp.college, clearly indicating the student for whom the evidence is relevant.

Eligible students at S6C are also supported financially through the 16-19 bursary.
There are two types of bursary:

Vulnerable Bursary
Students eligible in this category are;

  • Young people in care, including unaccompanied asylum seeking children
  • Care Leavers
  • Young people in receipt of Income Support or Universal Credit
  • Young people in receipt of both Disability Living Allowance (or the new Personal Independence Payments) and Employment Support Allowance (ESA, or Universal Credit as a replacement for ESA) in their own right.

College Discretionary Bursary

The College can also award a bursary to cover costs associated with books, equipment, transport, meals, trips and visits where a student is identified as needing additional financial support. This is awarded at the discretion of the College. Students eligible in this category are;

  • Applicants aged under 19 on 31 August 2023
  • Students from households where income is below £30,000

Each application for a discretionary bursary is individually assessed and there may be some flexibility based on an individual student’s circumstances. The bursary will usually be awarded as ‘benefit in kind’ e.g. the College will purchase the equipment/books or provide a voucher for a meal.
