College introduces bursary scheme
FINANCIAL help is available for students who are hoping to study a foundation degree or counselling course at South Cheshire College.
The College is introducing a new bursary scheme which could cut the cost of studying by up to £1,250 for full time students.
For a full time, two year foundation degree, a bursary of £750 will be given as a reduction off the second year course fee, if the first year is completed successfully.
There will also be a £500 payment to all students who successfully complete their second year.
A spokesman said: “We offer lots of Higher Education and Counselling courses at South Cheshire College, but in the current economic climate we appreciate that some of these courses may be difficult for people to afford.
“We want to make them as accessible as possible and hopefully, the introduction of this bursary will encourage many more students to sign up.”
Students starting foundation degrees and Counselling courses in September 2012 will automatically qualify for the bursary.
