Response to Scottish Governments consultation on the review of financial support for students. We support the general findings of the review, and consider how access to post-school education can be improved for students in disadvantaged circumstances.

We argue that despite welcome advancement in policy, such as full bursaries for all care experienced students, the global sum available to students with no access to financial support from family is insufficient.
