Education Questions

March 12, 2019

Yesterday, I asked the Minister for Higher Education about the progress of the ongoing review into HE funding, and particularly about potential recommendations for maintenance loans and grants. I stated that it is the cost of living (not tuition fees) that is a barrier to people from poorer backgrounds going to university. 

 

I'm clear that it should be your ability and not your financial situation that is the key to whether you are able to attend university, and I asked Government to ensure that any proposals from the review are aimed at achieving this, as well as ensuring the financial security of our universities.
