Childcare Funds

Childcare Funds

Full-time Students

If you are studying a full-time course and have a child who is dependent on you, you can apply for help towards the cost of formal childcare. Priority groups include students who are lone parents and students with a partner on low income which may be evidenced by Working Tax Credits. Our budget is limited so it is important to apply as early as possible. 

Part-time Students (SCQF Level 6 and below)

If you are studying a part-time course (for example ESOL, NC/NQ level courses) and have a child who is dependent on you, you can apply for help with the cost of formal childcare costs.  Priority groups include students who are lone parents and students with a partner on low income which may be evidenced by Working Tax Credits. Our budget is limited so it is important to apply as early as possible. 

Part-time Students (SCQF Level 7 and above)
