Student Finance England

On Wednesday this week, the 7th November, we will be having a representative from Student Finance England come to give a presentation in Room D3 between 12:25 and 1:50 on the increase in tuition costs from September 2012, the financial support available for students and the repayment structure. This will provide students with the information required to make key decisions about their future.  There is limited room for the presentation, so we advise your students to turn up in good time to get a seat.  If students aren’t able to attend, there are representatives to answer their questions via email and telephone.  Details on how to contact a member of their team are below.
