Changes to student finances released

The National Scholarship Programme, which was a government initiative established to support students whose household incomes was £25,000 or less has been scrapped.  There are no changes to the maintenance loans and grants system however. Many universities do offer extra bursaries and scholarships so it is wise to check their websites and talk to finance departments. This additional funding is typically offered to students from low household incomes or particular groups, for example, care leavers will receive £1000 bursary per year at the University of Hertfordshire.
