BRIGHTEST GRADUATES SHOULD NOT BE PRICED OUT OF POSTGRADUATE STUDY, SAYS THE SUTTON TRUST

23 October 2012

In response to the new independent report the by Higher Education Commission, entitled Postgraduate Education, Sir Peter Lampl, the chair of the Sutton Trust and of the Education Endowment Foundation, said:

“We must make the most of all our talents, and that is no less important in postgraduate studies which are now dominated by overseas students. The Commission's proposal for a targeted state-backed loan scheme should be pursued alongside other measures to support non-privileged postgraduate students.

It is vital that our brightest graduates are not priced out of postgraduate study. This is why the Sutton Trust has commissioned a new study on social mobility, which includes looking at access to postgraduate courses."
