Funding support for graduates

Within the first 12 months after you have successfully completed your course, you can access funding to help you make that first step into graduate employment.

Providing that you have successfully completed your course, we can offer up to £150 to help you meet the costs of attending an interview or assessment centre. This can include covering travel costs, interview clothes and loss of earnings.

In addition to this, we can also offer up to £300 to help with those initial costs when you start a job but haven’t yet been paid. This can include covering commuting costs for your first month, work clothes (where you are not in receipt of an allowance or provided with a uniform) and any relocation costs that will not be covered by your employer.

Apply for Graduate Support Fund

You have until 31 December 2023 to apply to this fund.
