Support while you study
If you are under 19 and have been resident in the UK for three years or more, full-time further education fees are free (this is subject to eligibility and status).
You will only need to pay fees if you move on to higher education or choose a commercial course.
You may also qualify for financial support while you study, such as:
- 16-18 bursary fund or a discretionary bursary
- Care to Learn – help with childcare while you learn
- Free or discounted travel
- Dance and Drama Award (DaDA) - funding while you study at a private dance and drama school. Find out more about the Dance and Drama aware on the gov.uk website.
