Financial Advice for Parents and Carers
Going to university comes with many new expenses and understandably the cost can be a major concern. Parents and carers are often most worried about finances, particularly concerning perceived debt. However, we like to think of it more as a future ‘tax’ that the graduate will pay, rather than a debt.
It’s important to remember that any young person who normally lives (i.e is permanently resident) in the UK can apply to Student Finance for a variety of grants and loans to support them at university. The government and the university also offer bursaries (non-repayable grants) for certain subjects, so there could be extra help available.
