The Chancellor’s 2014 Autumn Statement
December 3, 2014
Social scientists are likely broadly to welcome the promise in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement that government-backed loans will be offered to students on postgraduate degree courses.
Reports had predicted that postgraduate loans would be reserved for students in science and technology subjects (STEM subjects) but the Treasury said ‘all’ postgraduates would be eligible. Details of the promise and the terms and conditions attached to the loans have yet to be published.
