Improving Student Finance IAG: NEON & UCU Summit

Central London

2 November 2016

9.30am – 4.00pm

As tuition fees are set to rise again, it is imperative that our sector works collaboratively to consider both the state of student finance and how we as a sector can improve our student finance IAG.

In response to the upcoming rise in university costs, NEON and UCU are hosting a one day event on student finance as part of our joint effort to examine and improve student finance IAG. This event will:

  • Highlight successful student finance IAG through the examination of case studies;
  • Hear from the Student Loans Company, Canterbury Christ Church University and PUSH about their challenges and successes conveying information on student finance;
  • Explore in greater detail NEON’s national research on the effect of cost on the student-decision making process and learn about UCAS’ data and research on the subject;
  • Consider how we can successfully move forward with fine-tuning student finance IAG;
  • Hear from engaging panel of current students about how they would like to receive student finance information.
