Event description

Description

Is our student loan system broken?

Is it time to consider some intelligent solutions?

Can we reduce the billions of pounds of public money spent of loan subsidy?

Can we have a sustainable funding system whilst also offering student loans to all postgraduate, mature and part-time students?

For every £1 the Government is spending on student loans, 45p will never be paid back. The result is billions of pounds spent on invisible Government subsidies on loans. This is unsustainable in the long-term and restricts access to loans for those individuals who need support to retrain, enter postgraduate study and further their career prospects.

Getting loan design right is critical to ensuring the UK achieves a truly diverse higher education system that is fit for purpose and can meet the diverse needs of individuals, society and the economy.


Creating a well-designed system

Creating a well-designed higher education funding and student finance system is highly possible. Learning from systems with much lower loan subsidies overseas, we have put together a student loan system that would radically reduce loan subsidy and ensure that loans were available to all students, including postgraduate students, for the first time.


Our proposals

University Alliance will be launching our H.E.L.P UK proposals which will propose a realistic and affordable alternative funding system for the UK. Our proposals have been shaped by the views of students and parents based on newly commissioned research. They will offer some clear thinking and simple steps to improve the loan design, bring down the massive subsidy on loans from the government and re-balance the contribution between the state and individual to higher education.


Join us for the launch and make sure to have your say in this contentious debate.


Register your place.

We look forward to seeing you at our event.
