Screen and Film School’s Fair Access Fund is open for applications

9 June, 2023

Screen and Film School are delighted to be accepting applications for The Fair Access Fund 2023.

Screen and Film School  is committed to promoting equal opportunities for all applicants and all students. We actively seek to recruit a diverse student body that is reflective of the wider community. We believe that a diverse student body provides for a creative and dynamic community, and this is in line with the ethos and mission of BIMM Institute and Screen and Film School.

We aim to actively support access to our courses from groups of applicants who are underrepresented in Higher Education or face financial challenges  and hardship.  We want a level playing field  and  equity  of opportunity  and  so  we have set up  The  Fair  Access  Fund  to ensure students are supported  during their studies.

What does The Fair Access Fund aim to do?

Every student has different needs, and The Fair Access Fund aims to support successful applicants in the following areas:

Financial support: This includes our low-income household bursary, care leaver, care experienced or estranged student bursary. This bursary is financial support for maintenance costs including rent and is paid in instalments across the academic year.

Course material support: This can include help to purchase equipment, hardware, reading materials or uniform to support engagement with a degree course.

Engagement support: Specific support needs including additional learning support or help to access the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) or get a diagnosis for a condition.

Screen and Film School will  provide  you with a contact who will help you access the support you require. The amount  and kind  of support that you are awarded  will depend on your circumstances. Being part of this scheme does not  differentiate  you from  other successful applicants, access to the college hardship fund and receipt of support will be confidential.

“The Fair Access Fund really helped me with paying for my transport for the bus to the train station. It also allowed me to pay for my travel on the train to get to and from campus. Having this fund allowed me to not have to worry about my money for commuting and it helped me to be able to focus more on my degree and enjoy it.” -Student studying BA Filmmaking at Screen and Film School, Manchester
