Postgraduate study makes an enormous contribution to public life, providing so much of the knowledge and skills on which we all depend.
But too many postgraduates have to overcome significant barriers to complete their studies. Many have to stitch together a patchwork of part-time earnings, student loans, bank loans, family contributions and hardship grants to finance their studies.
We hear too many accounts of students experiencing financial anxiety, overburdened with excessive hours of part-time work, and distracted from their studies.
More than 80% of the students we supported last year have told us their studies have been adversely affected by the impact of COVID-19.
