Islanders in Jersey are being asked to share their views about plans for a new funding scheme for higher education.

Under the proposals, eligible students will have all or part of their tuition fees paid for by the States.

Full grants will be given to students living in households earning under £150,000. Students living in households with an income of £150,000 or more will get 50% of their tuition fees paid.

The Education Department wants as many people as possible to come forward to have their say on the proposals.

Islanders have until January 12th 2018 to complete the survey.
