Sale of English Student Loans


Categories: Campaign Emails

As you may be aware, students affected by the sell-off will be those students who entered repayment between 2002 and 2006 and only those living in England at the time they applied for their student finance. This decision will not impact Scottish students and the SNP Scottish Government have no intention of following the UK Government down the same privatisation path, that will ultimately be a bad deal for students.

While this decision does not impact Scottish students – and ultimately this matter is within the responsibility of the Scottish Parliament – there is a fundamental belief to ensure students get a good deal during their education. This is why the SNP Scottish Government scrapped tuition fees, making sure that education was based on the ability to learn and not the ability to pay, while also ensuring students are not worse off financially just for making a decision to go into higher education.
