Uni fees shake-up still on course

PLANS for university grants to be calculated based on household income, including that of step-parents, will go ahead after the States voted not to block the move.
States Members yesterday voted 34-10 against a proposition from Deputy Gerard Baudains, who had wanted the Education department to scrap plans to change the way grants are calculated to stop the system being abused.
Instead, the move – which could save Education up to £500,000 – is set to go ahead as planned in September.
