Open Days
  • A chance to see the university
  • A chance to meet the staff and students
  • A chance for students to determine is it right
    for me?
  • BUT REMEMBER
  • The university is trying to sell itself to you,
    you must dig below the surface.

UCAS Extra End of Feb to the beginning of June
  • - For students who have used all 5 choices and
    had no offers back (5 rejections)
  • - Can apply for 1 course at a time
  • - There will be a decision from the university
    within 21 days

    therefore apply for a course that has lower entry
    requirements than predicted grades to enable you
    to pass through the extra sifts

    the entry requirements

Part 2 Financial Changes for students applying
for 2012 entry to HE
25
  • Most details of the new student finance system
    are still subject to approval
  • Most universities are likely to charge between
    6,000 and 9,000 in tuition fees
  • There will be no up-front fees for any UK/EU
    student
  • Students applying in 2011 for a deferred entry
    will come under the 2012 fee regulations

26
4 Types of Finance
  • Tuition Fees Loan
  • Living Costs Grant
  • Living Costs Loan
  • Scholarships

27
Tuition Fees Loan
  • Cannot pay fees up front
  • Students can receive a repayable loan paid
    directly to the institution from Student Finance
    England

28
Living Costs Grant
  • Non repayable
  • Dependent on
  • - If household income is below 25,000 then a
    maximum grant of 3,850 is available
  • - If family qualifies for housing benefit, Armed
    Forces benefits, single parent family or they
    have a disability
  • If household income is between 25,000-42,600
    then a partial sum is available

29
Living Costs Loan
  • 65 of loan available is non-means tested with
    the remaining 35 dependent upon household income
  • Repayable and dependent on
  • Household income ranges on tiered basis from
    3,850 grant 3,875 Loan (Income 25k or less)
    to 3,875 loan only (income above 62.5k).
  • Example An income of 40k would enable a
    grant of 523 loan of 5,239
  • 2. Where the student will be living i.e., at
    home, at uni, in London

34
Points of Interest
  • The new system is unlikely to impact the ability
    to get a mortgage
  • Future graduates will have more income after tax
    and loan repayments (net income) - which makes
    saving for a deposit and repaying a mortgage in
    the years after graduation easier.
  • The Council for Mortgage Lenders (the mortgage
    company trade association) has said "A student
    loan is very unlikely to impact materially on an
    individual's ability to get a mortgage but the
    amount of mortgage available may depend on net
    income."
  • You may not be allowed to repay early
  • Students from, or going to, Welsh, Scottish and
    Northern Irish unis may have different rules
  • Many people will never pay it all back
  • Think of it like a graduate tax not a loan
