MRS Advanced Certificate bursary deadline on 18th October

Don’t miss the bursary deadline!

We know it’s hard to pay for qualifications right now, so don’t miss the MRS Advanced Certificate bursary deadline. You can apply for an MRBA Skills bursary up to and including the 18th of October 2020. If you’re successful, you can join our MRS Advanced Certificate course in January 2021.

MRBA Skills bursaries are valid for any MRS Advanced Certificate course

With an MRBA Skills bursary, you can apply for any of our MRS Advanced Certificate courses. You can opt to join our online course in January, or our face-to-face course. It’s worth noting that our face-to-face course may be delivered fully or partially online, depending on what Covid-related restrictions are in place at the time.

It’s great if you’re furloughed or unemployed

If you’ve been furloughed or made redundant, you can use your free time to gain MRS Advanced Certificate. We’ll let you start the course early so that you can put your time to good use.
