We look forward to meeting you.     

Travel bursaries 

We recognise that the cost of travel to campus can be a barrier to some candidates from taking part in our on-campus events. To help overcome this, for eligible students we offer to pay bus, train or coach travel to attend these days. You are eligible if you: 

  • Are currently or have previously been in receipt of free school meals
  • Are currently in receipt of the 16-19 bursary
  • Are currently enrolled on the Manchester Access Programme (MAP)
  • Are care-experienced or have refugee status  

Further information on how to receive this support will be given on receipt of your booking.
