FREE TRAVEL AND LUNCHES
If you’re aged 16 to 18, live more than 1 mile away from your main place of study and your household earns less than £40K per year, you could get help with your travel costs. If you live in Tyne and Wear, you could be eligible for a free Network One travel pass, or if you live outside of Tyne and Wear, you could get up to £300 per term or £900 per year in travel cost support. Students who live in the North Tyneside Council area should apply to the council initially, for help with travel costs.
You could also be entitled to free lunches if you’re studying full-time and you meet the required eligibility.
*All support is subject to criteria.
