Terms and Conditions

Funding issued to Barnsley College is governed by Education Skills and Funding Agency. Only essential funding can be issued to eligible Students.


Student Travel IconTravelling to and from College

Students will receive financial support based on the most cost efficient costs of travel to and from timetabled studies (including arranged placements). It is of the Students responsibility to apply for any concessionary passes available before studying at the College. For Students that drive to the College, funding will be calculated based on public transport costs. For Students that receive a half termly bursary, you will be advised via your award email when to expect these payments. Alternatively please refer to our FAW for payment dates. Funding will be paid based on attendances if below 90% and will be suspended if below 50%. If this does occur, please speak with a tutorial staff member who will need to then contact a member of the funding team.



In-kind support

Financial support can be awarded in many formats and does not automatically entitle a Student to bank payments. As part of ESFA guidance, any support issued to Students must be done so as in-kind support. Discretions can be made based on any consultation with Safeguarding or a Tutorial staff member.




Study programme essentials and timetables

Study departments will confirm any essential materials costs to Student funding over the summer period before the academic year commences. We recommend all Students wait until their study department have confirmed what is essentially required for their course to ensure there is prior knowledge what refunds can and cannot be issued.

Student applications

All applications must be completed by the Student directly unless an EHCP is in place and the next of kin is completing an application on the Students behalf. Any information deemed false will void an application form.





BACS Payments

Any agreed support claims that require BACS payments will be communicated with the Student directly via email. Any agreed funding will take up to 2 weeks to credit banks. We advise all Students to make an application during their enrolment period to avoid any delays with funding available.



English, Maths and ESOL

Staff support

Student Services are available via email on Studentsupport@barnsley.ac.uk or in the Old Mill Lane campus. For additional staff support, please speak with your study departments tutorial team who can also contact Student Services on your behalf.




False claims

In the event of a Student application becoming a false claim, any planned funding will be halted upon further investigation. This includes not listing all individuals living in the household that contribute towards household bills (Parents/Guardians/Partner) or incorrect bank details.

Students have a right to appeal a decision made with their application. Contact us as a reply to your email received with further comments and  a member of the funding team will be in touch with further information once a re-assessment has been made.
