Abstract

"This report summarises findings from the Going into HE research project. From the outset, the aim has been to develop a clear understanding of: the role and importance of finance in the decision-making process of English-domiciled people from different groups who are considering entering full-time Higher Education (HE) in the UK; and the impact of the support arrangements on their decisions. When taken alongside quantitative studies on HE participation and student finances, also published by DIUS/BIS, the qualitative research presented here contributes to an overall assessment of current student finance arrangements and should help to inform future developments." - exec. summary.
