I applied last year for 2006 entry and have just received a letter from the LSE which says something which I don't quite understand:

In your case, the home tuition fees for the 2006/07 academic year are 1,200 pounds sterling.
Now as I am coming under the old system, I am under the impression that the £1,200 is variable and you only pay the full amount if your household income is over a certain amount. But, I haven't given them or UCAS any information on my household income yet - so why are they saying that?

Do they just mean "up to £1,200" or as I am one of these weird :rolleyes: people who comes between the two systems will the difference be paid as a bursery or something?

I haven't forgotten to send them some info have I?

(BTW I am contacting their finance office too before someone tells me to do that - I just thought I might get a quicker answer here).

pre 2005 applicants only pay a max of £1250 towards tutitions fees

EDIT: actually might be slightly less

Exactly - if there is a maximum then it is not a set figure - so why is their letter telling me what I will pay when I haven't yet sent them my household information which they need to work it out... ?
Ive had a letter for 2006 entry not deferred. For the moment they are also assuming I will pay £3000. You sort out finances after you accept the offer. It is upto your LEA to provide a grant. Either way, LSE will still recieve the full amount.

*Didnt think an economics project on higher education would come in useful, lol

I thought we pay the £3000 regardless and then the government give those of us who get extra support the money back?

Basically, your fees are going to be £1200, regardless of who's paying, so I wouldn't worry about the wording of it. Just because your LEA will be paying part of it, doesn't mean your fee decreases because LSE are still going to receive the £1200 one way or another.
