Bursary at Selby College

For some students aged 16-19 from households with a gross income of less than £30,000 per annum, your son or daughter will be eligible for a Bursary, which means they will be able to travel to College free of charge. The Bursary also provides assistance with meals, necessary equipment and trips.

Students who are granted Free Meals will be issued with lunch vouchers worth £3.50 per meal. These can be used in the college Refectory or Coffee Shop to purchase one lunch between 11am and 2pm each day they attend College. If they choose to spend more than £3.50 they must pay the difference.

Students eligible for bursary on placement/work experience will be paid a cash amount of £3.50 per day to buy lunch. Students may also be issued with breakfast vouchers if sufficient funds are available. Students who are granted travel assistance on College buses will be issued with a travel voucher, a Smartcard or a termly bus pass, dependent on which bus they are travelling on. Other bursary payments e.g. for equipment or visits are made on a case-by-case basis.

Adult Discretionary Learner Support Fund/Advanced Learner Loans Bursary

Selby College also has limited funds available to support students aged 19+ and starting a new course - the Adult Discretionary Learner Support Fund and Advanced Learner Loans Bursary. Further information and application forms are also accessible on Moodle.

To make things easier and quicker for you to apply, we have an online bursary application system called Pay My Student which is simple to use.

Family Savings Regarding Bus Transport

We fully appreciate the cost of transport is expensive and have therefore agreed to charge for only one ticket, where families have two or more siblings attending full-time Further Education at Selby College.

If you have any queries or special requests or are unsure how your son or daughter would be able to access Selby College, please do not hesitate to contact our Student Services Department, who can discuss the range of options Tel 01757 211040 or email
