Open Day is the time when students and their family and friends can view the College, talk to staff and students, discuss career opportunities and university pathways and get information about accommodation providers, payment options and VET FEE-HELP loans to students. You may also be interested to know that the scheme has proven to be extremely popular with approximately 90% of our students taking up the loan this year. Many 2009 Bedford Graduates have now taken the opportunity to articulate into university degrees in 2010 where their HELP loan can continue. And for those students for whom financial constraints may have restricted them from attending a private college, VET FEE-HELP has provided them with the opportunity to do so. UNIVERSITY PATHWAYSMay I also encourage you to check our website for updates on university pathways. These pathways offer Bedford Graduates the opportunity to enrol (with credit) in a university degree without the stress so often associated with the UAI. We are currently working hard to build upon our university partnerships with more and more universities agreeing to formal (automatic entry) agreements.
