Careers and Higher Education Guidance
We offer a guidance service for both current and potential college students. You can gain guidance and information
on specific courses at Salford City College and help in choosing the most appropriate course for the career you want.
Support funds are available to some students to provide assistance with paying for equipment, trips and special
resources needed for college. If you need financial assistance or advice, see Student Services at your college
Bursary Scheme for New Students: From September 2011, EMA will be replaced with a new bursary scheme.
If you’re aged between 16 and 19 years and face financial hardship while you’re in full-time education you may
receive a bursary.
EMA Arrangements for Existing Students: If you currently receive EMA, you’ll receive weekly EMA payments for the
rest of the 2010/11 academic year while you’re studying.
You’ll receive payments while you study in 2011/12 if:
- you first applied for EMA in 2009/10 (you’ll receive the same weekly payment)
- you first applied for EMA in 2010/11 and you receive the maximum EMA payment of £30 (reduced to £20 a week in 2011/12)
Study Support can offer you the extra help you might need to succeed on your course. We have a dedicated team of experienced staff who can support you with additional needs such as:
- English and maths
- English for speakers of other languages
- Specific learning difficulties
- Any other difficulties that form a barrier to your learning
We offer one-to-one appointments, in-class support and specialist equipment and resources.
The college counsellors are available to help current students with personal and practical problems such as exam
anxiety, bullying and relationship difficulties. Counselling is confidential with a few exceptions, which will be explained
in your first session.
