The major review of Post-18 Education and Funding is well under way. As part of the review, we are considering how students and graduates contribute to the cost of their studies including the level, terms and duration of their contribution.

We want to make sure that funding arrangements across post-18 education and training are transparent and do not act as barriers to choice or provision, as well as offering value for money for students and taxpayers.

The independent panel chaired by Philip Augar will report at an interim stage, before the government concludes the overall review in 2019, as set out in our Terms of Reference, which can be accessed here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/682348/Post_18_review_-_ToR.pdf.
