    Fife College has recently responded to a report release dby the National Union of Students - Fighting for Students - The Cost of Survival - which details the impact of the cost of living crises on students.

    In mid-February 2023 Fife College Vice Principal Dorothee Leslie said: 

    "Sadly this report matches what our students have been telling us for quite some time. We are working hard to help our current and prospective students during this cost-of-living crisis and providing them with the reassurance that the college will continue to offer them a wide range of support measures to make coming to college affordable.

    "Our breakfast Club initiative, for example, has been an incredibly popular service from the College with over 5,000 free breakfasts being served since the start of the 2022/23 academic year. Building on this, from next week we'll also be serving free lunches. 

    "We also provide access to free laptops and other devices to support studies as well as support in gaining Hardship payments and food shop vouchers. This is a constantly evolving list based on the needs of our students as the cost-of-living crisis continues."

    For further information on this, please contact Sarah Thoms, Public Affairs Lead, Fife College - [email protected].
