Scrapping tuition grant for Welsh students at Welsh universities?

The Welsh Assembly Government has been asked to review the grant currently handed out to Welsh students in Wales.

The review panel said that there were better ways of encouraging Welsh students to attend higher education institutions – in particular students from poorer backgrounds.

They would rather the money is redistributed to the students who need it most…

Will this encourage more young people to go to university or will it just encourage Welsh students to look further afield?

Jane Hutt is due to respond later today.
