What is ELCAS?

If you are a current or ex-military personnel, you may be able to claim financial aid to help cover the cost of your studies.

The Enhanced Learning Credit scheme can be used to fund up to 80% of the cost of your studies, providing you are studying an approved qualification at level 3 or above.

As an approved learning provider, many of our courses can be funded through the ELCAS scheme.

What funding is available?

The amount of funding you can claim is dependent on the number of years you have served in the armed forces.

Typically, funding is broken down into two tiers:

Lower Tier: If you have served at least 6 years in the armed forces, you are able to claim a maximum of £1000 per year (for up to 3 years). If you completed your 6 years’ service on/after 1st April 2016 you can claim a single payment of up to £3000.

Higher Tier: If you have served at least 8 years in the armed forces, you are normally able to claim a maximum of £2000 per year (for up to 3 years).

Please Note: ELCAS funding can only be used to fund a maximum of 80% of your studies. Please contact ELCAS directly for exact funding requirements.
