的 英国广播公司's Today programme also reported on the rising number of UK applicants to Harvard whereby students with a family income of less than $60,000 will have all their tuition, accommodation and flights home paid for, with other support for families with income of up to $150,000. 的 Sutton Trust is also launching its first summer school for British pupils applying to university in the US.
On 2012年2月17日，行政法院还对两名6年级学生在2010年12月通过的《法定文书》（2010年实施细则）提起的司法复审程序中作出了判决，该文书允许英语大学收取最高至自2012年9月起，每年为在欧盟范围内的本科生提供9,000英镑的年薪：R-关于Hurley和Moore的申请-v-商业，创新事务大臣&技能 EWHC 201（管理员）。第六任前任辩称，《 2010年实施细则》与《欧洲人权公约》第一议定书第二条所赋予的受教育权相抵触，或者与第十四条的非歧视性规定一并阅读。埃里亚斯大法官作出主要判决，"该论据的主旨是，新规则将对那些处于不利地位的社会背景的人上大学的能力产生寒蝉效应。"审查了导致通过《 2010年实施细则》的背景，包括布朗勋爵 's 高等教育资助与学生资助的独立审查，他总结说，对高等教育权的任何限制都是实现合法目标的适当手段，并继续说，"我认为，在可以说收费本身，没有歧视性的情况下，至少在向需要贷款者提供贷款的情况下，收费本身会剥夺其效力的权利。"

重要的是要注意法官面前的狭窄问题："在所有召集议员的会议上，是否可以说祈祷是安理会进行的正式工作的一部分." 的 judge also observed that his 决定 would apply to religions other than Christianity.
的 last paragraph of the judgment summarises simply and clearly what the judge held:
"的 saying of prayers as part of the formal meeting of a Council is not lawful under s.111 of the Local Government Act 1972, and there is no statutory power permitting the practice to continue. If it were lawful, the manner in which it is carried out in the circumstances of Bideford does not infringe either Mr Bone'的人权，也没有因他缺乏宗教信仰而间接地非法歧视他."
的 judge had observed earlier in the 决定 that saying prayers before the meeting and not as part of the formal business of the meeting would not be unlawful.
的refore, public bodies wishing to hold (or continue to hold) prayers as part of their meetings would be advised to review the practice to ensure that doing so falls within their powers and those wishing to hold (or continue to hold) prayers before their meetings would be advised to ensure that the way they do so does not amount to discrimination.
