You can download and complete a CCA application form, from the ‘Apply’ section of your MyFunding account. You can only do this once your bursary application has been processed and approved.

Log into your MyFunding account.

How to apply

You will need to complete section 2 and section 3 for each childcare provider you use.

Do not include any costs that are covered through free early years education provisions.

You must reapply for the allowance every academic year. If your estimated costs or childcare provider changes during an academic year, tell us by submitting a new CCA application form.

Upload the completed CCA application form to your MyFunding account at the same time as the main postgraduate bursary application form.

We will process your application within 20 working days of receiving it.

What you can get

CCA is income assessed and only available to postgraduate students who have been nominated for a bursary place by their university.

We can pay up to 85% of your childcare costs.

The maximum amounts payable during the 2020 to 2021 and 2021 to 2022 academic years are:

  • Up to £155.24 per week for one child in childcare
  • Up to £266.15 per week for 2 or more children in childcare

Your childcare provider will also need to sign this form to verify your childcare costs.

CCS only

If a student is unable to apply at the same time as their bursary, they can apply any time during the academic year.
