We all know how expensive getting an education can be. That’s why we’ve partnered up with BCA National to give one lucky entry the chance for a full scholarship award to study in 2016! The only thing standing in your way of getting the paid-for-education you’ve always wanted is 300 words or less.

Think of this as an opportunity, like when life gives you lemons. Are you gonna chuck them out, feed them to your pooch for some serious Youtube spark, or get down to business and make a killer bowl of lemonade?


We get it. That puppy is adorable and hilarious. But just like you, it’s going to grow up. We’re handing out a chance for a free, incredible Diploma in a course you’re interested in. A chance for you to grow up with the backing of a seriously competitive program.

That’s why Year13 has teamed up with BCA National to award one of you a full scholarship in 2016. You are the future of change, and with the backing of BCA National, Year13, and a fully paid-for Diploma, we believe we can make the future you envision possible. And make some lemonade along the way…. too much?
