Financial Support for 18/19

19 and over

Not sure how you will support yourself in College?

The Student Services team at The City of Liverpool College understands that everyone has different needs, not only around learning but also in the support needed to come to college. 

We will help you every step of the way to make sure your time at college is hassle free. The team can help you with important things such as: 

  Please note, you must be aged over 19 or over when you enrol for your course to be eligible for this support


Live 1.5+ miles from your college centre of attendance/placement


Enrolled on a full time course (at least 3 days per week)


Have a household income of under/up to £25,000

We ask for a £20.00 contribution for your travel pass per term.

An exception to this policy has been made for Asylum Seekers, who will qualify for travel support if they attend for at least 2 days and meet the distance and income criteria.

Student Fund

The college has a limited fund to offer support to students with additional on course costs such as books, stationery, materials and equipment.

  • You can apply for this support if your household income is under/up to £25,000




The college does offer childcare support from the Discretionary Learner Support Fund. Student parents can choose whichever childcare setting is most appropriate for them. Childcare can be provided to children aged 0-12. External childcare can only be paid to a provider who is listed on the compulsory part of the Ofsted Childcare Register and/or the Early Years Register.

Tuition Fee Waiver

All courses have fees attached to them. Discounts and waivers may be available based on age, personal circumstances, the type of course you are studying and the level you are studying it at.

Your fee liability status will be established as part of your enrolment assessment.
