I've been considering going to uni as a mature student. I know nothing much about tuition fees, grants etc as it's not something I've looked into before. I've just been reading about course fees and grants on a uni website and it said tuition fees are approx £3290 or something (cant remember the exact figure) per year. It then went on to say that low income families can claim a government grant and a bursary from the uni. When i looked at what 'low income' was it seemed to be saying that if yr family income was left under £34k that the government grant and the uni bursary would be £3290 (or whatever the yearly course fee was) and if it was between £34k and £50k you would get a lesser amount. So that makes me think if I'm not working and hubby earns less than £34k I wouldn't actually have to pay tuition fees coz they would be covered by the grant/bursary that can't be right, can it?
