UNIVERSITY SUPPORT
Universities pay Bursaries and Fee Waivers for students where tuition fees
are greater than £6,000. These are linked to INCOME except for
SCHOLARSHIPS which while similar to a bursary depend on academic
ability.
Bursary
-
Immediate money
Fee Waiver
-
Reduces your overall debt
Generally Bursary is the better option
UCAS: Next Steps & Student Finance
PAY UPFRONT
You are entitled to pay upfront if you want/can:
- £9000 per year = £27,000 for a 3 year course
Pros:
- No debt and repayments
Cons:
- You might not have to repay so much depending on the
salary you earn after graduation
UCAS: Next Steps & Student Finance
EXTRA HELP IF…
-
You care for adults or children
-
Disabled students’ allowance (can include mental health)
-
Leaving care
-
Please see Mr Wheatley if you think any of these may apply –
application and assessment can take time
UCAS: Next Steps & Student Finance
YOU REPAY 9% OF WHATEVER YOU EARN OVER
£21,000
SO IF YOU EARN £22,000 EACH YEAR YOU WILL
REPAY 9% of £1,000 = £90
(£7.50 a month)
IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYEE THIS IS DEDUCTED
AUTOMATICALLY FROM YOUR SALARY
UCAS: Next Steps & Student Finance
EARN UNDER £21,000 AND YOU
NEVER REPAY
AFTER 30 YEARS ANY REMAINING
AMOUNT IS WRITTEN OFF
UCAS: Next Steps & Student Finance
INTEREST
Interest is charged on your loan
- While you earn under £21,000 this
interest equals the inflation rate (i.e.
your loan is no more expensive in real
terms)
- Over £21,000 you start to pay up to 3%
more than inflation rate
UCAS: Next Steps & Student Finance
SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR ME:
You will repay £540 a year LESS than current graduates
For most there is NO DIFFERENCE between fees of £6,000 and £9,000 as you would
not repay £6,000 in full in 30 years let alone the £9,000
