If you’re a continuing part-time student you can get a Course Grant to help with course related costs such as books and travel. The Course Grant doesn’t need to be paid back.
You could get a Course Grant of up to £1,155.
How much you get is based on your income (and your partner’s income if applicable):
|Household Income||Amount of Course Grant|
|Less than £26,095||Maximum Course Grant of £1,155|
|£26,095 to £28,180||Partial Course Grant (at least £50)|
|More than £28,180||No Course Grant|
You must also be studying at an average course intensity of at least 50% to get a Course Grant.
The Course Grant is paid in one lump sum directly into your bank account at the start of term. For this to happen you need to register on your course and your university or college confirm that you’re in attendance.
