NUS: ‘Government reforms would put students off university’

            

Survey finds many students would have thought twice about university under planned reforms

Thousands of students would not have gone to university under the government’s upcoming changes to higher education, the National Union of Students has claimed, based on a survey of over 1,000 students across the UK.

The survey, carried out earlier in May, found that 22 per cent of current students would not have gone to university if the repayment length had been 40 years instead of 30, while 19 per cent said they would not have applied if the threshold at which graduates start repaying their loans had been £25,000 instead of the current £27,295.
