The £400 Higher Education Cash Bursary is available to all learners who meet the eligibility criteria.
The Higher Education Engagement Bursary is also available to those learners who meet the above criteria and are on a Level 4 or Level 5 course. The Engagement bursary is a maximum of £550 for the 2023/24 academic year, which is split into ten payments of £55 over the academic year. If the learner achieves 90% attendance for the specific period, they will receive the £55 directly into their bank account, in line with the Engagement bursary payment schedule.
Please note that attendance will be calculated based on all courses that you are enrolled in at Newcastle College, not just Higher Education courses.
