If you are 16-19 and studying at school, college or with a training providers, you may be able to receive a bursary.
Your place of study should make details of the bursary scheme available to you and further information should be available on their website.
The bursary can be used towards meals whilst attending the course, transport, books and equipment, field trips and other course-related costs and may also be used towards the costs of attending university interviews and open days.
