Work Experience Subsidised Travel

In addition to our free bus service, we can also offer eligible students reimbursement on travel costs to their work experience placements.

Travelling to work experience

If you have work experience as part of your study programme, and you are unable to get there using our free travel service, we offer a reimbursement package for your travel there and back.

Household Income £16,190 or below = 100% Travel Cost Reimbursement
Household Income £16,191-£25,000 = 50% Travel Cost Reimbursement
Household Income £25,001-£30,000 = 25% Travel Cost Reimbursement
Household Income £30,001 or above = No Travel Cost Reimbursement

These benefits are means tested and only are available to all full time students aged 16 to 18 on 31st August; and all students aged 16 to 25 on that date if they have a statement of special educational needs. No benefit costs are transferable and no cash equivalents are available.

If you have any questions or want to check your eligibility, please call Student Services on 0191 518 8222.
