    I recently heard on the news that the government or some form of official body would pay two years of the tuition fee for disadvantaged kids.

    I am on £30 a week do I qualify? or did I misunderstand things..

    They're talking about free school dinner claimants getting 1 year's tuition fee funding with a second year if their uni is one charging £9K.
    Do you receive free school dinners? I believe your family income has to be around £16K max.

    No, because it's just an idea, not a firm decision. Just like the fee increase.
