Student Support Applications for Higher Education - Update at end of January 2012
Statistics on applications for student support and Tuition Fee Loans, and Tuition Fee Grants awarded, include data for Welsh domiciled students (wherever they study) and EU domiciled students studying in Wales, for the period up to 29 January 2012 (the last Sunday of the month). The latest monthly release updates the statistics previously released on 12 January 2012.
The key points from the latest release are:
- In the 2011/12 academic year to date, a total of 56,135 applications had been received for student support in Wales, down two per cent compared with 2010/11.
- 48,450 applications had been received for Tuition Fee Loans, an increase of two per cent on 2010/11. This may be as a result of the Tuition Fee Grant not being available to new students from 2010/11.
- 12,255 students had been awarded a Tuition Fee Grant.
In 2006/07, loans to cover the cost of tuition fees became available for students. New system Welsh and EU domiciled students studying in Wales (i.e. those entering the new support arrangements introduced in September 2006) were subject to tuition fees of £1,200. Welsh domiciled students studying in England were subject to variable tuition fees of up to £3,000. In 2007/08, variable tuition fees (up to £3,375 in 2011/12) were introduced in Wales affecting all students who started their courses from 2006/07 onwards. Pre-2010/11 new system Welsh and EU domiciled students(1) who study in Wales are eligible for a Tuition Fee Grant (non-repayable) of up to £2,030 (2011/12 level), dependent on the institution they attend.
(1) Continuing students who started a course of Higher Education on or after 1 September 2006 but before 1 September 2010.
