1 Tuition Fees and Student Finance A summary of the presentations made by Student Finance England reps, & Peter Boursnell, Brent Aimhigher Coordinator UCAS Annual Conference February 2012

2 Overview  Update on Tuition Fees  Student loan from 2012  What does it mean for you?

3 Government claims the new arrangements will ensure …  all graduates will pay less per month than they do under the current system.  all outstanding repayments will be written off after 30 years  around a quarter of graduates, those with the lowest lifetime earnings, will pay less than under the current system. The Browne Report suggested that only the top 40% of earners on average will pay back the full amount of their loan over the 30 year repayment period. This percentage was based on its recommendations and may be different under the government’s proposals.

4 Important things to remember  No up front payments made  No payments at all until graduate earns £21,000  9% earnings above the threshold are collected for repayment  Loan written off after 30 years

12 Conclusions  Think seriously about applying to university: - If you do not see yourself in graduate employment after university, there may not be much point in going at all! - All the research shows that graduates are, on average, happier, healthier and wealthier than the rest of the population! - Make sensible choices to ensure that you get value for money. UNITSTATS. - When you get there, demand value for money!

13 Conclusions cont.  Although you will probably be paying more overall for your university studies  You do not have to make any up-front payments  Your rate of payment will be less than students currently pay  If you go into graduate employment, monthly repayments will be well within your means.  Rather than a loan (and therefore a debt) it makes more sense to see tuition fees as a graduate tax.  In 1970s when there was no tuition fees or student loans, basic income tax was between 30 and 35%. People managed.  It is as if your income tax will be 29% rather than 20%. You’ll manage.

15 The World of Higher Education ▪Massive expansion of Higher Education in last years ▪Government cuts in HE funding – esp. teaching budget ▪Financial penalties on HE institutions for taking students above quota ▪Rise in tuition fees won’t offset govt funding cuts

16 Why Universities like state school students … “Hoare and a colleague studied the results of 4,305 students admitted to Bristol in The starkest result was the 54% gap in firsts between state and private school students with three As at A-level.” From the Sunday Times

17 General guidance ▪Minimum entry requirements ▫Are minimum entry requirements ▪Achieving minimum entry requirements gets you on the pile that gets considered ▫Then additional sifts are applied ▫Everyone competing for the place your candidates want will also meet the minimum requirements ▪Ask mentor/D Studies about the likely sifting process at target institutions ▪Ring them yourself

18 Some application strategies ▪Broaden your choice of institution
