UNIVERSITY OPENS ITS DOORS TO FUTURE STUDENTS

 

The new system of tuition fees being introduced by the Government in 2006 is one of the issues prospective students and their parents will be able to find out about at an open day at the University of Lincoln this weekend.

 

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.

 

As well as information about fees, bursaries and scholarships visitors to the open day, which will be held on Saturday 19th November from 9.30am until 4pm, will also be able to see the university’s state-of-the-art facilities and talk to course tutors.

 

A shuttle bus will be provided to ferry students to and from the university’s other campuses in the Cathedral Quarter and at Riseholme. Guided tours will be provided on arrival.

 

“Our open days are always very well attended as they provide the best opportunity for students and 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.”
