If you are between the ages of 16-18, you will not need to pay for your education, and Blackburn College will provide you with as much financial support as we can to help you through your studies.

We have now developed a new student support package. Our ‘All About You’ Support Offer is new, and improved and all about you. Enrol at Blackburn College on a full-time course in September 2022 and you can receive tailored financial support. The Student Finance team can develop an individualised package that works for your needs.

Help with your journey to college

We have a range of bus pass travel options for our students to get to Blackburn College. The travel pass can also be used at any time and at the weekend too.

If you’re not eligible for the free travel pass, we can offer you a low cost travel pass.

'All About You' support offer

The 'All About You' Support Offer can help you with a range of costs which come with studying.

This could be with help to stock up on the main stationery and IT equipment* you need to help you with your studies.

It could also go towards reduced lower cost college meals. You can use across all cafés and food spots on campus.

*IT equipment is required back at the end of your studies.
