Residential Support Programne


The Further Education Residential Support Programme is there to help you access education that is not available within a reasonable daily travelling distance of your home. The programme will pay for residential accommodation where term time lodgings are within 15 miles of the college you wish to attend; it can also help with the associated travel costs of living away from home.

You are eligible to benefit from the residential support programme if you are aged 16 or over. The scheme allows you to claim up to £3,458 towards your residential living costs each year. Assistance will be given for a maximum of 3 years and will be awarded pro-rata.

Your application will be assessed on household income (ie a learner’s income and their parents’ or partner’s income).
