Students: York

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many students (a) currently resident in City of York constituency, (b) studying at the university of York and (c) studying at the university of York St. John receive (i) grants towards their university fees and (ii) non-repayable bursaries towards their maintenance costs. (324218)

Since academic year 2006/07 students have been able to defer payment of tuition fees by taking out a Tuition Fee Loan. Tuition fee grants have not been available to new students since then and are only available to those who began their study before 2006/07.

In academic year 2008/09 100 students with home addresses in the York local authority area were awarded tuition fee grants. Reliable information is not available at constituency or university level.

The information requested on bursaries is not available centrally as they are the responsibility of higher education institutions.
