BIS Ministers have so far been unable to commit to retaining the Student Opportunity Allocation in full in 2014-15 or guarantee its future in 2015-16. Million+ is not alone in raising concerns. Mainly student unions have contacted MPs and parliamentary questions continue to be tabled. In addition to media coverage, a letter from Vice-Chancellors was also published in The Times. This funding makes a difference and we hope that MPs and Peers continue to seek assurances from Ministers in both BIS and the Treasury that its future in 2014-15 and 2015-16 will be secured.
