Part-time students

Policy passed at the Ordinary General Meeting on 1999-02-20

The London Transport student discount scheme should be available to all full-time students, regardless of age, and should be extended to part-time students, as a significant portion of these groups are postgraduates, who are likely to be in financial hardship. The scheme should also be accessible for students registered at institutions outside London.

NPC's policy on premium fees and hidden course costs should apply to both part-time and full-time postgraduates. Some postgraduates (such as lone parents) study part-time because full-time study is impractical.
The Research Councils/AHRB should relax their rules against funding part-time postgraduates when there is a good reason why an individual would be better suited to part-time work.
