At Suffolk New College we understand that the current cost of living crisis is affecting many of our learners and their families right now. We have a range of support in place to help you through this.
Financial Support for Learners
Bursaries – The College is offering four bursary schemes to enrolled students for the 2022/23 academic year, offering assistance with kits and other materials, travel to College, uniforms, college trips, etc.
Free College Meals – If you have been approved a bursary and are entitled to Free College Meals then this will be added as a credit onto your Student ID card.
Care to learn scheme – If you are a young parent, aged under 20 (as of 31 August in the year in which the course starts), you can apply for a Government ‘Care to Learn’ grant.
- Free Toast for Learners in the morning
- Free sanitary products available in student support
