Petition Action

Exempt Uni students affected by Covid from being charged interest on loans.

Petition Details

The Government should not charge interest on student loans for those affected by covid. Interest rates are historically low as it is and more students would pay back the bulk of the actual loan amount as opposed to either only paying off the interest or not paying anything at all.

Additional Information

University students are NOT getting the level of teaching and access to facilities required to get a decent level of learning, especially those doing a practical subject with little or NO access to workshops and labs etc - Art, Drama, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Design, Engineering to name but a few! Final year students in these subject areas are particularly at a disadvantage.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
