WATCH: Sheffield students protest about changes to higher education

5 May 2022

Tomorrow a period of government consultation proposing changes to higher education will close. 

Sheffield students gathered outside the Department of Education on 3 May, protesting the changes being suggested by ministers.

The changes may mean students who do not receive a grade four in English and maths GCSES or two E’s at A-level will not be able to apply for student loans.

Ministers argue that these reforms will make the system fairer for students and taxpayers, believing it will encourage more young people to consider apprenticeships

Will Tanner, Director of Onward, said: “For too long many young people have been encouraged towards unsuitable degrees that do little to help their careers or even leave them financially worse off.”
