Student Finance Update
The Government has previously announced significant changes to higher education/undergraduate tuition fees from 2012.
The Hull College Group has set its Higher Education fees at a level of £6000 per year from 2012 for new full-time undergraduate students at Hull, Goole and Harrogate. This tuition fee will apply to all new students who enrol on the first year of their course in September 2012.
This increase in fees has been brought about by a change in the way Government funds higher education institutions, which results in a reduction in the amount of public subsidy for study in higher education. The Hull College Group has worked hard to keep its proposed fees inline with the base levels proposed by Government, whilst ensuring that it continues to provide an excellent and high quality education experience for students. The Group also offers a range of bursaries and scholarships to ensure that it continues to offer opportunities for students from disadvantaged backgrounds to benefit from higher education.
The changes to tuition fees does not affect existing students registered on undergraduate degree programmes at the Group who will continue to pay the same fees for the duration of their full-time course. For example, if you paid £2,600 for your first year of full-time study in 2011/12, your fees for the remainder of your course will remain the same.
Existing students that progress at HCUK to ‘top-up’ their Foundation Degree to Honours level will continue to pay the original full-time fee (£2600) until they complete their honours studies.

New - The National Scholarship Programme
The Government has recently announced details of a new national scholarship programme that will provide students from disadvantaged backgrounds with help towards the cost of studying higher education. Each university and college will design its own scholarship scheme which could offer help for eligible students with the cost of tuition fees and other benefits. It will apply to students entering HE from autumn 2012. Hull College Group will publicise details of its final scholarship scheme on this website.
