Prospective students and their parents who are still in the dark about tuition fees can get plenty of information and advice at an open day at the University of Lincoln in Hull tomorrow (Wednesday).


The second undergraduate open day of the year will be held at the Derek Crothall Building on George Street on Wednesday 23rd November.


Information about fees, bursaries and scholarships will be available at the open day, which runs from 1pm until 4pm.


From September 2006 the University of Lincoln, like most UK universities, will charge students £3,000 a year in tuition fees. However the fees will not be payable until after students graduate, and even then only when they are earning £15,000 or more.


The University of Lincoln is offering financial support to students in the form of bursaries for those on low incomes and university and faculty scholarships.


Registration will take place at George Street at 1pm after which there will be an official welcome, a talk on fees and funding and finally a number of school presentations and tours.


“Our open days are always very well attended as they provide the best opportunity for students, their friends and family to get a feel for life on campus,” said Student Recruitment Manager Karen Raynes.


“Students starting at university next September will be the first to receive the university’s generous new bursaries and scholarships and we will be happy to explain the new system to visitors at the open day.”
