Financial support for new 16-18 full-time students
Following the Government’s withdrawal of Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), Hull College Group has launched new financial support funds for full-time 16-18 year old students.
The HCUK Student Maintenance Allowance is designed to help students with the costs associated with studying, including travel, meals, books, equipment and materials. Help with the costs of childcare will still be available through the Care to Learn Fund.
If you are looking to start a full-time course with HCUK from September, or are progressing onto another HCUK course, and you meet the eligibility criteria, you could be entitled to receive one of the above awards.
To see if you are entitled to receive the HCUK Student Maintenance Allowance, take a look and see if you meet the criteria below.
Call our friendly Information, Advice and Guidance team on 01423 878296 for more details or to check whether you are eligible to receive the HCUK Student Maintenance Allowance.
The HCUK Student Maintenance Allowance will be means tested on a current gross household income of up to £20,810 and payments may be paid by BACS transfers directly into students’ bank accounts or “in kind” such as bus tickets, meal deals, CRB checks or transfer of funds to pay for essential equipment for trips.
If you’re intending to enrol on a full-time FE course with us from September 2012 and think that you may be eligible for the HCUK Student Maintenance Allowance, download our application form below.
