Students starting in September 2021 ARE able to apply for a bursary to help with the cost of their studies.
LIPA Sixth Form College is committed to ensuring that all of our students can participate in college life as fully as possible.
There are no fees to study at LIPA Sixth Form College and we provide free school meals to those students who meet the means-tested criteria. Sometimes, there are costs attached to additional opportunities, such as trips and optional enrichment activities.
Bursaries are available to support students with the costs associated with attending college. These are available to those students who meet the specific criteria for each bursary. Each can be applied for once a student has enrolled, and may be means-tested:
•Income-Assessed Bursary for students whose family income is below £25,000 per year.
•Guaranteed Bursary for students who are in, or have recently left, local authority care, or who are in receipt of specific benefits or payments, for example, linked to their disabilities.
•Free School Meals
Information on how to apply for any of these will be distributed at enrolment in August. For information, you can view the criteria for bursaries for 2020 applicants below.
