Petition Support low income mature students to complete their education to degree level
Petition on behalf of low income mature students at Highlands College. We have all shown a commitment to study evidenced by our merit and distinction profiles. We have all been offered places on degrees, however income support have refused to support us any further.
We are five students of six who applied for the social work degree however were unsuccessful. We are all now being pressured to find work even though we have places on the Psychology/ Criminology degree. We all want to work within the sector that helps the community such as social work, police and mental health however we have now been refused support when other degrees have been accepted giving students on the other degrees a massive advantage, please help us to help Jersey's community.
