Hi Folks,

You're probably aware of the proposals for new postgraduate student loans at Masters and PhD level in the UK and you may also know that the UK government is currently seeking participants for its consultation process.

This is an opportunity for various groups (including students) to say what they think about the plans for the loans and as you may have noticed if you've since the lovely pink banner ----->

... we've put together a page that lets you take part in the consultation right here on the postgraduate forum:
The consultation tool explains the various aspects of the policy you're being asked for feedback about as you go, but you can check out the guides to the Masters loans:

http://www.findamasters.com/funding/guides/new-uk-postgraduate-loans-scheme.aspx

And the PhD loans:

http://www.findaphd.com/funding/guides/uk-phd-loans-scheme.aspx

At FindAMasters and FindAPhD.com.

So, if you feel strongly about different aspects of these policies - or these changes to higher education policy in general - now's your chance to have your say. The consultation will run until 29th May.

Of course, you can also chat about the policies here in this thread - but, if you're a UK student, make sure the government knows what you think as well!

Cheers,

Mark

Just a quick reminder about this, folks.

However you feel about the recent election result, the government will be pressing ahead with some pretty significant postgraduate finance reforms - for Masters and PhD students.

If you're likely to be affected, you've got two more weeks to make your voice heard as part of the open consultation.

Cheers!

A final reminder for this folks:

The consultation process ends tomorrow, so there's one day left to take part.

There's been some very vibrant discussion of funding and finance related topics around here recently - if you're eligible to contribute to the consultation, you can let the government know what you think about their own plans to mix up the economic landscape for PGT and PGR students.
