The NPC has made use of the new online petitions at 10 Downing Street to reassert our policy for the student loans scheme to be extended to postgraduates not in receipt of financial assistance. The policy reflects that for PhD students, approx a third gain financial assistance from Research Councils but the majority, and the majority of Masters Students, are self funding. The financial worries of continuing onto postgraduate study can have a detrimental affect on students and the NPC believes the student loans scheme represents the best measure for supporting students.

The petition has gathered nearly 1000 responses and we would encourage you to pass on the petition and help to petition for the extension of the student loans scheme to postgraduates.
