Document Childcare Allowance (CCA) rates for postgraduate course students

If you meet all eligibility criteria you can apply for a contribution towards any childcare costs you incur with a registered childcare provider.
We can contribute 85% of your actual costs per week, up to a maximum.
The following are the maximum amounts payable during the 2018/19 academic year:
  • Up to £155.24 per week for one child in childcare
  • Up to £266.15 per week for two or more children in childcare
This allowance is income assessed and only available if you've been allocated a capped bursary place.

Part time students

You're entitled to claim childcare costs at the same full time rate. The Childcare Allowance (CCA) won't be reduced in the same way as the other elements of your part time bursary.
