Please find below our Parents HE/UCAS Presentation. This provides information about HE options and the process of applying for HE courses through UCAS.
In addition, below is a presentation from Student Finance England, which outlines financial support available for students wishing to access Higher Education courses. They will show current support and figures for students and give you an idea of the financial support available. These figures can be subject to change for the forthcoming year. We will also invite you to College to attend a Student Finance Parents’ evening.
Parents and students can use the Student Finance calculator tool (available at www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator) to understand the types of student finance and how much financial support a student may be entitled to when attending university.
