At Central Bedfordshire College we pride ourselves on providing an exceptional level of support for all our students. From finance to welfare, our award winning student support teams are there to help you with every step of your journey with us.

Unlike some colleges, we view our higher education learners no different to any of our other students. So when you study with us, you get access to exactly the same support as everyone else at the college. Here are just a number of ways we can help;

Financial support

We know that when it comes to financing your education, it can be a little daunting. At Central Bedfordshire College, our funding team in on-hand to provide you with advice and guidance on the various finance packages that may be available to you. Typically when financing a higher education course, there are three main routes:

  1. A student loan – taken out via the Student Loans Company
  2. Instalments – set up with Flex Ed
  3. Full payment – paying the course fees in full prior to start date.
