If you are planning to stay on in full-time education after year 11, you will need to think about the cost of travelling to your course.
The cost of transport for your post-16 course will depend on where you live and where you intend to study. Transport support is dependent on you attending your nearest post-16 centre.
- Your Local Authority can help with transport costs; if you meet certain criteria they may be able to offer you a subsidised travel pass
- Some colleges organise their own buses; the costs vary, so you would need to check individual college websites for detailed information
- A few people can get free transport; this depends on personal circumstances
Visit the Cambridgeshire County Council website for detailed information.
If you are not sure whether you'll get support with your transport costs you can call Cambridgeshire's Education Transport team on 0345 045 5208 for more advice.
