star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Government is not currently intending to change student loan payments from three termly instalments to monthly instalments. Payments of living costs support for full-time students in higher education at the start of each term give students the flexibility to meet up-front costs such as accommodation costs.</p><p> </p><p>Advice on effective budgeting is available through the BIS Student Finance Tour where recent graduates share their personal experience with prospective students on how to manage their living costs spending while at university. Around 120,000 prospective students attended the Tour in 2013, and the aim is to increase this number to 140,000 in 2014. Budgeting advice is also available through university student support services including the Money Doctors Initiative. Additional resources are available through the National Union of Students and the National Association of Student Money Advisers. <br></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Medical Research Council (MRC) is one of the seven Research Councils sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). The MRC funds a broad portfolio of diabetes research which amounted to £24 million in 2012/13. Of this, £3.6 million (15%) is relevant to Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). This includes underpinning studies relevant to diabetes in general, as well as studies on the prevention, treatment and the downstream consequences of T1D. Expenditure on T1D research over the last five years is as follows:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Medical Research Council expenditure on Type 1 diabetes, 2008/9 to 2012/13</p><p> </p><p>Year Expenditure</p><p> </p><p>2008/09 £4.7m</p><p> </p><p>2009/10 £3.7m</p><p> </p><p>2010/11 £3.6m</p><p> </p><p>2011/12 £4.0m</p><p> </p><p>2012/13 £3.6m</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Note: where a research project is related to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, 100% of the project value has been included in the totals shown above.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The MRC does not routinely analyse expenditure on diabetes research beyond an analysis of T1D and Type 2 Diabetes research. However, details of all research supported by the MRC, including summaries describing the aims of the research and links to research publications and outputs can be found on the Research Council UK's Gateway to Research at: <a href="http://gtr.rcuk.ac.uk/" target="_blank">http://gtr.rcuk.ac.uk/</a>.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The MRC does not normally allocate funds to particular topics but always welcomes high quality applications into any aspect of human health. All applications are judged in open competition and the primary considerations in funding decisions are scientific quality and importance to human health. In keeping with the Haldane principle, decisions on research priorities and funding are taken by the Research Councils based on advice from the scientific community through peer review.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Technology Strategy Board spend on T1D in the last three years was £354,879.00. This relates to a project which ran in 2010/11.</p><p> </p>
