Financial Support

At Cambridge Regional College we understand that there are costs related to attending college, if your annual gross household income is £30,000 or below, you may be eligible for a college bursary which could support you towards these costs.

On this page you will be able to see details of each of our bursaries and determine which one would be applicable to your based on your circumstances. There is also detailed guidance, a handy guide and a video tutorial which explains registering and making an application which will help you through the process.

Please note the bursary is unable to provide financial assistance towards your course tuition costs. For further information on course tuition costs please contact Student Administration.

Are you a Returning CRC Student?

For those who studied the first year of a 2 year level 3 course at CRC in 2021/2022, applications for 2022/2023 bursary will open on the 10th August, providing they have enrolled. Student who are returning but on a different level course will be unable to apply for bursary until they have enrolled- see below new started information.

Please note, once you have enrolled you may need to leave our systems a few hours, sometimes overnight, to update before you apply for bursary.

New students will be able to apply for the 2022/2023 bursary once they have completed the enrolment process. New students are invited in during the last 2 weeks of August to enrol, please keep an eye out for the day you should come in to enrol.

Please see the guidance on this page of how to register for the Pay my Student (bursary) portal and how to make your application.

Are you using the College Bus to get to College?

If you are applying for the bursary to help with the cost of the college bus please apply for the bursary once you have enrolled, then email  to request a voucher. Vouchers will be issued from W/C 29th August.  You can then use this voucher code to purchase your bus pass from Shuttle ID. Please click here to purchase your ticket.

All students who are eligible for bursary will get the early bird college bus rate of £495 so do not worry if you are unable to apply for the college bus before the 31st August due to being a first year student and having an enrolment meeting date after 31st August. If you are unsure if you will be eligible for bursary after reading all the information provided on this page, we would encourage you to make an early bird application as soon as possible.

If your discount is for 75% (as per bursary guidance) of the bus pass fee, then you will be requested to complete a direct debit form to pay the remaining 25%.
