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
the impact of the support arrangements on their decisions.
When taken alongside quantitative studies on HE participation and student finances, also published by DIUS, the qualitative research presented here contributes to an overall assessment of current student finance arrangements and will help to inform future developments.
