You can get food and drinks from the college’s on-site canteen, shops and various vending machines.

If you lose your college pass you can contact student services who will be able to organise and print a new card.

Because many of our students are adults we recognize that some of them may not have studied for some time. Some students may therefore be worried about joining a college course or be unsure about which subjects to choose.

We, therefore, provide a number of courses specifically designed to give help and encouragement while at the same time teaching the required skills.

If you’re thinking of continuing your education at Furness College, then getting your hands on some much-needed cash is going to be high on your list of priorities.

If you think you may not be able to afford to study, there are a number of ways you may be able to get help. General advice is given here but the rules can change from year to year, so we recommend you follow the links provided to access the most up-to-date information.

Contact Student Services for advice on how to make the most of any financial support available, such as the Student Bursary 16-19 year old and 19+ which can assist you with childcare, travel, book/equipment costs or course fees and the 24+ loan.

For helpful and friendly advice, you can also contact Student Services on:

If you are experiencing difficulties, you can talk to us confidentially and we will provide the necessary support. We have a counselling service available for students and work closely with external agencies on health and welfare issues.

The College is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all students, staff, Governors and visitors.

Please see our policies for more information.

If you are under 19 and a student at Furness College, you will be supported by a Personal Progress Coach (PPC) who will work closely with the Student Services team. They will help you settle into College life and overcome any difficulties that may arise. They will also keep an eye on your attendance and academic progress and identify if you need any help. Our adult learners will receive pastoral support from their teacher.

Firstly, don’t panic! There’s a course available for everyone at Furness College – not attaining your expected GCSE grades does not mean your offer to study has been withdrawn. You may be asked to attend an advice session, to discuss whether pursuing your selected course is the right choice for you, or if another course might suit you better in light of your recent results.
