Student Finance - Parent and student information evening
31 October 2011
As part of National Student Finance Day, Liverpool John Moores University is hosting an information evening for parents and students on Monday 14 November 2011.
The Independent Taskforce on Student Finance has organised the day to dispel misconceptions about student debt and put into perspective some of the recent press headlines regarding university tuition fees. Martin Lewis, head of the Independent Taskforce on Student Finance Information and founder of MoneySavingExpert.com, said:
"The perception of student loan debt in 2012 is hugely misunderstood. Prospective students are making their decision based on headline fee levels rather than how much it’s actually likely to cost them. Many students, especially from lower income families are unnecessarily being put off. We need to ensure they understand how it really works so they can make an informed choice."
The event at Liverpool John Moores University’s Art and Design Academy will be relevant to parents and students with a view to applying to university for entry in 2012 and beyond and is aimed primarily at ensuring all relevant parties understand how the new student finance package will work prior to making a decision about their future. The evening will also provide information on the university application process and the benefits of progressing to Higher Education, with members of University staff available to answer questions on these issues.
Further details on the event, plus information on how to register can be found within the 'Subject Specific' webpages: http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/opendays/99169.htm
