Distance learning provider launches bursary

Distance learning provider Oxbridge has launched a £35,000 fund to help educate, retrain and upskill people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The company, which is based at Aston University, on Birmingham Science Park, said despite emergency government support being pledged to ease the threat of unemployment, many people were still finding themselves without jobs as Coronavirus brought our every-day routines to a halt.

And so, Oxbridge is supporting learners with the launch of a fund that gives new students 20% off course fees across the board.

Believing that education should never be restricted, Oxbridge has been turning any room into a classroom since it launched. But the demand for digitised learning has never been so acutely felt as it is now that we are ‘social distancing’, so Oxbridge is helping to facilitate those looking to learn with the introduction of its new-starter bursaries.

To help ease the financial stress for those that are facing new careers, Oxbridge has launched the £35,000 fund which will provide relief and give students 20% off their course fees. Not only does this offer some respite to those who need it, but it also provides enhanced accessibility to education at a time where many people won’t be able to necessarily afford it.

Founder and managing director of Oxbridge, Matt Jones, said: “These are once-in-a-lifetime circumstances we find ourselves in and we want to play our part in helping. So, on behalf of Oxbridge, I have made available a £35,000 bursary fund to assist those who are in need at this time. We hope this goes some way to supporting those that find themselves in difficult situations and need to retrain.

“Oxbridge will remain open throughout this challenging period. Many of our teams work remotely as part of their normal working, and we are well-rehearsed in this way of providing our service.”

Oxbridge offers a wealth of courses from bookkeeping to beauty therapy to counselling, event management and more, giving a window of opportunity into new career paths or simply a chance for learners to further enhance their skillset. And as well as being distance learning courses, giving pupils the chance to study from home, the college’s curriculums are also available on a part and full-time basis, meaning that they can be adapted to schedules as needed.

“As always, our fantastic team will continue to deliver an exceptional, informative and safe course provision for our students and now, more than ever, I am overwhelmingly proud of the dedicated team behind who make our organisation so special by maintaining our “student first” approach to everything we do. 

“We will never take this special relationship for granted, and know that we’re always here to help and support you in any way that we can. Stay safe, be kind and let’s do what we can to help each other,” concluded Matt.

To claim 20% off, new students just need to enter FUND20 at checkout. For more information on Oxbridge and the courses on offer, head to: https://oxbridgehomelearning.uk.
