  18. Other help that’s available… Scholarships, bursaries and awards Students may be able to get a bursary, scholarship or award directly from their university or college. National Scholarship Programme Starts in September 2012 and gives financial help to students studying in higher education in England. The NSP is designed to help students whose families’ income is £25,000 a year or less. Universities and colleges will decide who to give financial help to from this group. NSP awards are in addition to any other student finance, apart from help with tuition fees. Students who receive this kind of support under NSP will have their tuition fee loans adjusted accordingly.

  19. Repayment (From Student Finance) You will pay interest on your loan from the day your first payment is made until the loan is repaid or written off, whichever is first. Any loan remaining after 30 years will be written off.

  20. If you change your mind next year… If you leave your course early you need to repay a percentage of the Tuition Fee Loan for that year. The percentages are: 25 per cent during term one 50 per cent during term two 100 per cent during term three

  22. Money Money Money When you'll get your money Full-time students get their student loan or grant after they register on their course at the start of term. Part-time students get grants around six weeks after returning their completed application form when term starts. Your money is paid into your bank account, except for Tuition Fee Loans which are paid directly to your university or college each term.

  23. If your details or circumstances change… You must let Student Finance know If you’re a full-time student, you can log in to your student account and change the following details: • address • bank account • password or secret answer • course, such as changing course after your A level results; or leaving, returning or taking a break from a course • loan amount or type, such as the Tuition Fee Loan amount • if you become a parent To update your details online, log in to your account and select ‘Make a change to your application’ from the ‘My account’ screen.

  24. Module Results The remaining time you have left is absolutely crucial. What has been going on: • Students have received advice from teachers and heads of department. • Tutors have been offering advice and guidance on what to do next. • Students have met with members of the Sixth Form team to work out how many UMS points they need to achieve their target grades. • Guidance has been given regarding any plans for re-sits. • Re-sit forms have been completed.

  25. Module Results If you haven't done any of this – you need to … TODAY The deadline for re-sit forms is tomorrow.

  26. Module Results – Things to consider How many marks are you from your target grade? Re-sits aren’t always the answer. Too many will negatively impact your remaining modules. You may almost be guaranteed the grades you need – is the next grade boundary up still in sight? What do you need to do now? You all will have an individual plan of action – have you got yours? Has it been checked?
