Student Life & Support
Help and advice for parents and students, including financial aid, how to get to our campuses, and the support we can offer you to really help you succeed.
Are you aged 19 or older* and thinking about further education? With an Advanced Learner Loan, there are no upfront costs and you won't start to pay anything back until you earn at least £27,295 a year.
For some of our courses, it is necessary to purchase relevant equipment or clothing (e.g. protective clothing), whilst for some others, we offer optional college-branded clothing.
We are working with Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) and local bus providers to subsidise the cost of transport to help widen the options for young people in Fenland and help remove the financial barrier for parents / guardians. If you are eligible, you won't need to speak to the local authority or bus company as we will sort everything for you!
How to apply for a course at CWA and what happens next.
It’s easy to get to and from college, as all four of our campuses are well-serviced by local bus services, with King’s Lynn campus also being a short walk from the train station. We also have limited car parking and bicycle shelters on each site.
For our students to succeed at college and prepare themselves for their chosen careers, it is vital for them to have opportunities for meaningful work experience and to learn from a variety of employers. There are lots of ways that employers can support us to deliver this.
Our aim is to support our students to further develop their learning and employability skills and abilities to enable them to make informed decisions about their future education, training, and employment.
Our vision of “Changing Lives through learning” is achieved by providing high quality teaching and learning. We aim to raise the aspirations of our students through the experiences they gain by studying at CWA. This includes their main study programme, tutorial, enrichment and work experience placements.
