Studying an adult course at Bridgwater & Taunton College gives you the opportunity to gain a new qualification, change your career path, increase your earning potential, or, on a personal level, boost your self-esteem, meet new people or learn a new skill.
Details of our courses for adults are here on the website and you can enrol straight away to secure your place!
We offer courses where no prior qualifications or experience is necessary, through to postgraduate Level 7 courses, and Distance Learning courses, where you don't have to attend College.
Are you 19 or over and thinking of starting a College course? Then you can apply for a Government loan to help fund your studies!
Advanced Learner Loans are available for anyone aged 19+ starting an eligible course at Level 3 and above (exceptions apply) from 1 August 2017. The Loans are designed to support learners with their course fees in a similar way to how students studying university level courses receive a higher education loan.
If this is your first Level 3 course and you are aged 19 – 23 on 1 August 2017, you may be able to get the course for free!
How do I apply?
You will be able to apply for a Loan from May 2017 for courses that start between 1 August 2017 and 31 July 2018. It is recommended that you complete an online application to enable your application to be dealt with more quickly; visit the Direct.gov website. You will need your Learning and Funding Information Letter, which was sent to you with your offer to be able to do this. If you do not have this information or need further support with making your application please contact our Information and Guidance team on 01278 441234.
