Student support

Student support

We know that college isn’t your whole life, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help – benefit from award-winning advice and support in everything from your future career to your personal wellbeing.

Award-winning support

Since 2004, our Student Services team have held the Matrix quality standard, awarded in recognition of the professionalism and quality of our support and guidance.

Personal tutor

As a full-time student at our College you’ll benefit from your own personal tutor who’s there to provide continual, one-to-one support throughout your course. Your personal tutor is there to help you perform at your very best and will meet with you regularly to help monitor your progress and plan your next steps.


How you feel can have a huge impact on how you work – at Bedford College, we don’t want your personal wellbeing to get in the way of achieving success, so should you ever need to talk to someone about issues in your private or College life, we have a dedicated counselling service where our trained staff are here to help.

Additional support

With a fantastic additional support team on hand providing help to develop assignment skills, access to specialist equipment and support staff for those with dyslexia, hearing or visual impairment, no matter what your individual learning needs may be, we aim to ensure that the Bedford College experience is accessible to you. Call our team on 01234 291905 (minicom 01234 262870).

Financial guidance

If you’re aged 16-18 our full-time courses are free to study, but coming to college can involve other costs. Thankfully, our student finance team are on hand to provide advice on any fees, course costs or travel expenses you may have to pay, and help you with the range of financial support packages we offer.

Careers advice

Our focus is the same as yours – firmly on your career. From help with applications to information on your job options in work, training and higher education, our expert careers advisers are available from before you join us, right up until the end of your journey here, providing the impartial guidance you need to make the right choices about your course and future career path.
