NUS: 'Students should not have to bail out universities'

The Russell Group of leading UK universities is proposing that graduates should have to start paying back their student loans earlier and at a higher rate of interest.

It says the money would help to plug a shortfall in university funding of more than £1bn over the next three years.

Professor Michael Arthur ,chair of the Russell Group and vice-chancellor of Leeds University, and Aaron Porter, president-elect of the National Union of Students, consider the effect of the new recommendations on graduates.
