The government has been called on to offer more
financial support to postgraduate students.
According to the National Union of Students (NUS), the current loan
system which funds undergraduates should be extended to those who
go on to further studies.
Aaron Porter, vice-president for higher education at the NUS, told
the BBC's Moneybox programme: "The government, if it claims that
postgraduate study is important, and it does, needs to ensure a
fairer funding system to support students."
Currently, postgraduate students must access funding through grant
or career development loans, with the latter having commercial
rates of interest.
However, some big companies are now offering new employees
assistance to manage their student debt.
The Times recently reported that the Confederation of British
Industry has found "a number of firms" helping those who in
graduate jobs with their remaining tuition fees.
