Are you looking to go to university in 2012, or a parent of a potential student, and want to find out the details on how the tuition loan system will operate and how to get a student loan?

You can visit Make Your Future Happen, which shows what help you can get with living costs and what support is available from government.

You can also visit the Channel 4 website and hear about real life testimonials from graduates who found their time at university and their resulting degree invaluable.

Universities and Science Minister David Willetts said:

“New students will not pay upfront costs, there will be more financial support for those from poorer families and everyone will make lower loan repayments than they do under the current system once they are in well paid work.

“A university degree is an excellent investment in your future. Students and their families need to know that applying for student finance is quick and easy and can be done on-line.”
