Making sense of university fees

HIGH Peak sixth form and college students are being encouraged to attend an open evening at the University of Derby Buxton on Thursday aimed at clearing up confusion about the costs of higher education.

The free ‘Fees and Finance Information Event’ will take place at the Dome from 6pm to provide young people and parents with the information they need to make sense of the new higher education tuition fees structure from September 2012, as well as the opportunity to ask experts questions about university courses and financing them, such as how and when tuition fees are repaid.
