Home to College Transport
Boston College is supporting students by increasing its bursary qualification threshold to £32,000.
This means if you live in an household with an income of less than £32,000 and you qualify for Lincolnshire County Council transport (i.e. you are under 19 at the start of your course, studying for more than 12.5 hours and living more than 3 miles from the College) we will reimburse you the cost of this so your transport will be free.
As well as this we can also offer support for learners who want to come to Boston College but don’t qualify for Lincolnshire County transport, contact our Learner Services Team on 01205 313218 to find out more.

If you are studying a Higher Education course you are entitled to apply for a Student Loan through Student Finance England. The amount of loan depends on individual circumstances.
Advanced Learner Loans
If you are aged 19 and over, studying a qualification at Level 3 or above, you may qualify for a Advanced Learner Loan, which will help towards your course fees.
If you progress to employment after gaining your qualification you won't have to pay anything back until you’re earning £21,000 per year. Your household income isn't taken into account and there's no credit check. Your eligibility depends on your course, nationality, and age.
Care to Learn
If you are a parent under 20 and want to start or return to learning, Care to Learn may be able to pay for your child care and other extra costs.
