Higher education consultation (FOI)

Higher education consultation (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 12 March 2018.


I wish to make an FOI request in relation to the recent decision re funding for higher education and the consultation process that was undertaken. Could you provide answers to the following queries;


How many respondents actually stated the proposal was too generous and should not help very high income families? How many respondents said it was fair? Please provide this information as a percentage.


How many respondents actually stated the £150,000 threshold for a reduced grant was too high? How many stated it was fair? Please provide this information as a percentage.


How many parents actually stated they were concerned about funding and whether income tax would rise to pay for the scheme? Please provide this information as a percentage.


The information requested is already publicly accessible and is therefore exempt under Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. A full summary of responses from the consultation on Higher Education funding proposals can be found at the following link:
