Degree Fiasco at Ballyfermot College of Further Education - students refused grants on questionable grounds – please help us change this! sign now

 

 

Help us fight SUSI and get our courses/college recognised as eligible for student grants!

 

Although the issue of degree students not receiving grants has been raised over the last two years, students on the Media Production Management and Animation Degrees are NOT currently awarded grants and this won’t change unless we get your help.


Students on these courses this year are simply being fobbed off by SUSI (tendered to City of Dublin VEC) with some sample reasons for ineligibility including “course not approved – foundation course” and “course not approved – private college” both of which are incorrect. The degrees are accredited by Dublin City University and Dundee University respectively and are administered by BCFE - which is under the auspices of City of Dublin VEC. The City of Dublin VEC states that “we believe that education should be available and accessible to all...” However, without maintenance grants this is not going to be the case for many current and future students of BCFE that a blanket ban on receiving said grant affects.
