The Manifesto for our Future, backed by 10,000 students and apprentices, sets out how the next government can end the student cost-of-living crisis in its first 100 days:
- Uprate maintenance loans in line with inflation, backdated to June 2022
- Living Wage for apprentices, maintenance funding for postgraduate taught students, and Living Stipends for postgraduate research students
- Extend Universal Credit eligibility to all students and apprentices
- Ensure that 35% of all student bed spaces are affordable, with rents related to average student income
