Academically Accredited Courses (AAC) Award

Get funding help for your academically accredited course from the CSP Charitable Trust.


This fund only supports applications for national academically accredited or validated programmes, such as national vocational qualifications, BTEC awards, access and postgraduate courses. The fund does not support member costs towards undertaking part-time or full-time qualifying degrees in physiotherapy.

If you are unsure of a programme's eligibility please contact the programme provider or the awards administrator.

Applications for funding should normally be made in the year in which the programme is to be undertaken.

Applications can be made retrospectively, providing they are submitted by a deadline which falls within the same calendar year in which the programme has been completed.

Award amounts will be based on the amount of credit carried by the course. As a guide successful applicants would receive no more than:

  • £300 - for a 20 credit course
  • £600 - for a 40 credit course
  • £800 - for a 120 credit course
  • £1,200 for a 180 credit course (MSc)
  • £1,500 for a PhD

How to apply

There are two rounds of funding per year for this award. Applications will next open in July 2021.
