Education heads vow to support local students

Tuition fee system being re-examined in Jersey

Education chiefs will always aim to contribute public money towards local students’ tuition fees, says the minister.

Proposals for a new higher education funding scheme in Jersey have been welcomed on the Channel Islands this week.

If approved, they would see those eligible have part or all of their fees paid for by its parliament, the States.

Graham Cregeen says there is already widespread support in the Isle of Man to help university students from the burden of debt and give them the best possible opportunities.
