Announcement soon on England 'Tigere' policy

23 March 2016

In January, we told you that we responded to a BIS consultation on draft Student Support regulations. Such regulations would introduce new eligibility criteria to allow people who have a long residential connection to the UK to enter higher education.

BIS has confirmed to us today that it expects "to be able to confirm the policy towards the end of next month"; we presume this will mean a change to the regulations for Student Support and fees. We will provide an update, and analysis, when we hear further about this.
