Suffolk Students to Save £5000?
A new scheme, launched by the University Campus Suffolk (UCS) is now giving the chance for newly enrolled students to receive up to £5000 off their degree if they agree to participate in mentoring programmes at schools across Suffolk.
The Suffolk Access Champion Scheme is targeting students beginning university in 2012 with the aim of raising the aspirations and attainment levels of young people across Suffolk. First year university students would work with year 10 pupils at their former high schools in order to receive the substantial fee waiver.
The launch of the scheme, which took place at the UCS Waterfront Building, was attended by students from Chantry High School and Suffolk One. Vice Principal of Suffolk One and previous Chair of the Suffolk Aim Higher Partnership Group, Jenny Milsom, explained “This exciting new scheme builds on the strong foundations laid by Aim Higher Suffolk over the past seven years. It will benefit students across the county, helping to raise awareness of Higher Education in Suffolk and encouraging our young people to think carefully about the opportunities available to them.”
Throughout the day, UCS visited hundreds of students at numerous colleges and high school to explain what the changes to student finance in 2012 will mean for them.
