What about finance?

Teacher Training

Studying in Europe

Further Education in the UK
From 1998 entry the Government is introducing a new system for supporting students in HE.

There is an initial student contribution to tuition fees of £1,000 per year, representing about a quarter of the average cost of a course.

Tuition will continue to be free for students from lower income families.

Other full-time students will pay up to £1,000 per year (depending on parental income).

Beginning in 1998/99, the current system of maintenance grants will be phased out and replaced by a loan system.

Students will not be required to make any contribution for their received maintenance support until they have graduated and are in work.
