Notes for commercial clients
If you are a business who requires any of our services, you can enquire whether the type of service you need currently qualifies for a student subsidy.
The subsidy scheme provides a grant from the central grant fund and go towards the commercial work costs which have been accepted (subject to approval in all cases), but not including VAT. The range of subsidies are currently between 20% to 65%
Successful commercial clients need to agree and comply with the criteria allowing students to work on the approved project and to permit the students to use samples of the completed work to be shown as part of their course work.
Subsidies are shown on client invoicing and form part of our standard terms and conditions of business.
