When should I apply?

Please ensure you apply for your travel pass in good time - contact the appropriate council directly for further information on their specific timescales. You do not need to wait until your course offer is confirmed or your bursary application has been processed (if applicable).

Specialist Transport

For students with additional needs or disabilities that are unable to travel by bus, please contact your local county council for information about specialist transport for post-16 education.

Is there any financial support available?

There is a College Bursary Fund available which can be applied for. If eligible, the bursary may be able to help with travel costs, college meals and other expenses. Please be aware that no bursary payments are made prior to students commencing their course, therefore any payments due before September will need to be made up front.

Can I drive my own vehicle to campus?

Students can choose to bring their own vehicles on site. There is plenty of parking available and all car parks are free. Students will need to register their vehicle details at the point of enrolment and collect a parking permit from the Student Centre. This will need to be displayed at all times when on-site.

I don't travel from any of the places shown - how do I get to Otley campus?

Many of our pick up points are accessible via public transport links, please contact The Student Centre for further information.
