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

All courses from Entry Level to Level 2 at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London are FREE, regardless of your age or income!
Level 3 Courses (e.g. Access to HE, Level 3 Diplomas)
If you are 19 to 23 and are studying your first Level 3 course at CONEL, it may also be FREE!
If you want to study another Level 3 course or you are aged 23 or older, you will have to pay course fees. You may be eligible to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover the cost of your fees.
