Be sure to check with your relevant organisation about its response to the coronavirus. We know, for example, that Sweden’s CSN has arranged for students to be granted additional financial support if their programmes are suspended due to the crisis.

To research possible grants and scholarships, we recommend checking out third-party sites such as Top tip from our admissions team: If you are currently working in a relevant industry to your desired Catalyst course, it may also be worth checking if your employer could fund your training.
