Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme
We are proud to be a registered learning provider with the Ministry of Defence's ELCAS scheme. ELCAS is a scheme run by the Ministry of Defence to provide financial support to Armed Forces personnel (both serving and service leavers) to study a course at university.
How do I apply?
If you’re interested in applying for the ELCAS scheme, then visit their website to find out if you match their criteria. Those who do should submit their application at least 5 weeks before the start of their course. Our Learning Provider’s Reference number is 3046-be sure to include this on your application to study at the University of Cumbria.
The ELCAS website has all the forms and details you need to submit your application, so if you think you might qualify, it’s worth having a look.
If you’re not quite sure whether this scheme is right for you, then please contact one of our Student Money Advisers to get more information.
