    ok am interested but have little knowledge on the finance side of university as i was suppose to be taking deferred entry until i got offered an amazing course through clearing! ( good ole clearing )

    so there is: The student Loan This is £3,000 per year in which you PAY off at the end when you start full time employment....... you spend this on food, water, leisure facilities, other amenities such as a book to read?

    accomodation for me this is about £75 per week, which is paid termly ( i think after 3 months )

    top up fees now what are these? i heard it would have been cheaper for me to take the deferred entry and go to university in 2005....... will it be more expensive as i'm starting in 2004?

    course fees again, havent the foggiest, are these the same as topup fees?

    my parents are paying for the fees and accomodation ( to my knowledge ) and i'll be paying for the loan when i work whcih is all well and good
    any tips? advice? anything else to take into account? how much debt do you think you will be in by the end of your 3 or 4 year courses????

    Top up fees (the same as course fees) : The current maximum fee payment is £1,150 . You can apply to your LEA for assistance towards your tuition fees.
    From 2005 you will have to pay up to £3,000 per year but you will start paying after you graduate, provided that you have found a job. Even if you take deferred entry will not have to pay top-up fees of up to £3,000.

    2005-2006, that's next year, except if you take deferred entry.

    Personally, I ll be studying in scotland and as a european union student I ll pay nothing, so my debt will be significantly lower..

    i would double check that m'am...
    i went to the UCAS convention, and they said that entrance for 2005-2006 will be much harder, becuase lots of people who are out of education, will come back, less people will take GAP years, due to the increase in top up fees for 2006-2007 entry...so most people cnt afford to pay up to £3000....

    THen again, the guy must not have known wot his talking about.....

    ...... but i doubt that.

    :eek:

    I checked it again and it is indeed 2006-07, my fault.



    2006-07: Universities and colleges will be allowed to set their own tuition fees between £0 and £3,000; the maximum of £3,000 will be set for the whole of the next Parliament. It is not yet known at what level this, or any other university, will set tuition fees.
