Financial Support

There is financial support on offer to assist you when you study with us. We run a number of support schemes to help students on low incomes, or those in receipt of benefits. Most financial support schemes are based on your age, immigration status, and your financial circumstances.

The Learner Support Team at our Enfield or Tottenham Centre is your first point of contact for all financial matters. You can call us on 020 8442 3966
