Surrey County Council and Babcock 4S are aware of the problems presented by the high cost of housing in Surrey and are involved in a number of initiatives.
Current support includes the following:
Financial supportThe Government provides help towards tuition fees and living costs for students on all recognised initial teacher training (ITT) courses, subject to assessment based on individual and household income levels.
Most students do not pay the full tuition fee and independent students rarely have to pay any contribution towards tuition fees. Part-time students may also be eligible for help with fees.
Support with living expenses is available in the form of a repayable student loan and a non-repayable higher education grant, assessed on family income. There is also a range of extra grants for students with particular needs. These include a childcare grant and a disabled students' allowance.
For up-to-date information on higher education student support, consult the DfE website www.education.gov.uk/ .
Applications for financial support should be made to Student Finance England via www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance .
