The Student Finance Team is located in Student Services, behind the Student Reception on the Crawley campus. We will help you ensure that money isn't a barrier to you coming to college. There are several funds, government schemes and bursaries that can help you. Find out here what financial assistance you are entitled to and how to apply here.
