Hi Larry

I want to register and study with the ICB but I lack the funds to apply. What can I do?

Thanks,
Thuli

Hi Thuli,

The ICB do offer bursaries every year (closes 30 April!) for a limited number of our students but you must have completed at least 1 ICB subject to qualify. Read up on ICB Bursaries here.

There are many non ICB funding opportunities available. One useful website is Go Study.

I have listed a few for you here. Please make contact with these organisations for any questions you may have.
