Third year Undergraduate Student Chloe Knight has been interviewed by local media in jersey about her dissertation research on the impacts the system has on the financial decisions of students wishing to attend university in the UK.

Chloe was determined to study something within Jersey, where she is from, for her dissertation. The unusual higher education student finance system there took her interest and she has decided to study it from a Human Geography perspective. Chloe's aim is to research the impacts the system has on the financial decisions of students wishing to attend university in the UK, and also the economic impacts those decisions have on Jersey. Primary research has involved a survey and interviews. Her research has come at a time when the subject of higher education funding is constantly in the news, both in the UK and in Jersey and Chloe has been fortunate enough to attract some attention from the local media, both the Bailiwick Express, who wrote an article about her survey and BBC Radio Jersey who invited Chloe to talk on the radio about her study. Both of these have been amazing opportunities for Chloe not just to publicise her research but to engage with new people and improve other skills such as public speaking.
