UCU says student support lottery must stop

UCU said yesterday that it was ludicrous that the amount of financial aid students currently receive is random and that universities with a good track of widening participation can only offer meagre support to their students. Responding to a report from the university access watchdog, OFFA, Sally Hunt said: “How much financial support universities offer students is a complete lottery. Universities doing the most to attract students from the poorest backgrounds are unable to offer those students the vital funds they need to survive at university.”
