Walsall College has launched a new bursary scheme to help part-time students on its university level courses balance the cost of living and studying.
The college has received a number of enquiries from students looking to enrol on university level courses on a part-time rather than full-time, as they need to keep working and earn an income to support themselves and their families.
The bursary is available to any student on a part-time higher education course at Walsall College, and will offer £600 payable in installments over a year. In order to qualify, students need to maintain an excellent attendance record and submit their assignments on time.
Vice Principal of Business and Partnerships at Walsall College, Henriette Harnisch said: “We have introduced this new bursary as we are committed to ensuring that every student is able to study at a higher level of education and achieve their potential, regardless of their financial circumstances.
“With a range of HNC and HND courses costing significantly less than equivalent university courses, Walsall College is already a cost-effective route to achieving a degree. However with the rising cost of living, we want to ensure higher education is accessible to everyone.
“We are very proud of our HE offering as the curriculum has been created in partnership with our industry links, and designed to prepare students with the vocational skills that employees and universities are looking for. We have a range of courses to help students achieve their goals without having to leave home to study.
“We also pride ourselves on the fact we have state-of-the-art facilities typical of large universities, but differ in that we provide an inclusive and supportive community environment. Every student is treated as an individual and encouraged to realise their potential.
