“Prior to starting my degree in Canine Studies in 2017, I was always reluctant to look at any form of higher education. This was mainly due to the cost but I spoke to a friend who told me about the RE CPD Bursary Scheme/Study Grant.

With this new knowledge, I finally began looking for a course that was something that I was passionate about and would help me in the future. I found a Canine Studies Degree through ELCAS and began the application process. Once I had been accepted on to the course, I printed the bursary scheme paperwork, filled it in and sent it off. A few weeks later I received a letter explaining I had been granted £700 from the scheme. With this bursary, along with ELC I was able to afford the higher education and I have just successfully completed my final year. I applied for a bursary for each year of study and was accepted each time.

All I can say is thankyou to the RE CPD staff for your help”.
