Support for further education (FE) students

Discretionary student support funds are provided by GC for students who are struggling to pay for things like trips, course materials, childcare (20+) and travel expenses.

Your child can apply if:

  • They are 16+ years old
  • They are receiving income based benefits, or being supported by someone who has these
  • They are on a low income (this will be assessed by Student Services)

Students can apply for a discretionary student support fund by visiting Student Services on campus.

Opening times: Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5.00pm


We work with Stagecoach West to provide discounted tickets for all of our students. Students simply show their GC student ID at point of purchase.


There are a number of ways you can get additional financial support.
