Been awarded a travel bursary from my local college suppose to be starting in September. 

The college bursary money does not go to me directly. 

The college apply for a travel pass on your behalf so all I will be getting is travel pass to use the train to get to college. 

Do I need to inform UC? 
I’m not receiving any money from college or any other loans are not available because this course is not a higher education course. It’s a retake for my maths and English gcse pre access course. 

(We are pleased to inform you that your bursary application has been successful and in accordance with government and college guidelines you have been awarded a Travel Bursary of £1546The details of the award are as follows:

We will purchase a travel pass on your behalf for the journey you detailed on your bursary application form or the most cost-effective method of travel.)
