Student loan repayment

BBC regional radio stations

29 July 2014

The BBC Newsnight interview on Monday 28 July with PA Consulting Group’s Mike Boxall, higher education expert, has been rebroadcast across the BBC radio network, including BBC Radio 5 and several regional stations.

Each radio station’s broadcast explains that ministers and officials have been developing a plan for universities in England to take responsibility for the debts of their students.

Students currently borrow from the governments, but the new proposal could help universities generate money, but might also drive up fees. Mike says: “Undoubtedly, universities have got by far the best deal in the current system. They are getting a higher amount of money per student than they used to and they are receiving that money for every student they recruit – with no risk or responsibility for repaying it. The risk of students not being able to repay their loan is currently on government and the tax payer.”
