Travel Assistance over five miles
If you live on a public transport route and five miles away from the College then you may be able to obtain assistance with your travel. This could be in the form of a bus pass, or train pass. With most services operating past Weymouth College at least every two hours, and in most cases every ten minutes, then the College is ideally situated to access the growing transport network. All this and we offer the cheapest student contribution charge so you don’t have to pay the earth to travel in Dorset. The majority of students now have annual bus passes allowing travel at weekends, evenings and even during college holidays. Download the Application for Transport Assistance 2020-21 Form
