As many new students begin university or higher education courses, Vincent Duggleby put your student finance questions to a panel of experts.

If you are a new student, you may be wondering what you will have to pay for and which loans, grants and bursaries are available to help.

How will means testing or parental income affect your funding?

What interest rate will you pay on your loan?

Perhaps you want to do a follow up course or change courses?

Or maybe you are about to apply for next year, where do you start?

Whatever you want to know about student finance why not contact the programme?
