Additional Financial Support

You would be eligible for the PARTNERS Programme supported entry route if you are currently in receipt of, or entitled to, any of the following:

  • free school meals
  • Pupil Premium funding (please speak to staff in your school/college if you are unaware if you are entitled to this funding)
  • discretionary school/college payments directly linked to financial hardship
  • the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) at the ‘enhanced’ rate in either the ‘daily living’ and ‘mobility’ components, OR the ‘standard’ rate in both components

We also take into account your predicted grades and in order to be eligible, your predicted grades must match or exceed the lower PARTNERS offer.

If you're eligible, apply to the PARTNERS Programme now. We look forward to receiving your application.

If you are not in receipt of, or entitled to any of the above, you are not eligible based on this criteria. To check if you're eligible under other criteria, return to the eligibility checker page or or have a look at the full list of PARTNERS Programme eligibility criteria.
