UK unis treating Guernsey students as overseas
Friday 14th December 2012, 8:30AM GMT.
SOME parents will be forced to pay more for their children’s university fees after four universities refused to treat Guernsey students the same as those in the UK.
Education minister Robert Sillars, pictured, announced the move during yesterday’s States meeting.
The maximum parental contribution is to be raised from £6,983 to £7,983 for students beginning their studies in 2013 and to £8,983 for those starting in 2014.
‘There are a number of parents that get a full grant and it won’t affect those,’ said Deputy Sillars.
‘Parents will still be means tested.’
