Education: Not Free, Not Fair

Education: Not Free, Not Fair
Fighting for a fairer funding system for students
Students in Scotland pay for their education every single day: 
  • The maximum a Scottish student can access in loans and grants is £5,852, significantly below the official poverty line. 
  • Those not from Scotland or on their first full time undergraduate degree pay tuition fees
  • Students are forced to work exceedingly longer hours in part time jobs, putting their studies at risk, just to make ends meet
  • Students increasingly turning to credit cards, overdrafts, and commercial loans, often at high interest rates.
  • Worst of all, many talented people who want to study don’t even make it through the doors of college or university. 
Suddenly, education doesn’t sound very free or fair, does it?
