Leicester MP Jon Ashworth and Deputy City Mayor Rory Palmer have signed up to be funding champions with students from the University's Students' Union.

In a special ceremony at the Union building on Friday 6 December, they pledged to support a National Union of Students’ checklist which calls on the government to “continue to play a key role in funding postgraduate education and ensure that the sector is not neglected in the allocation of public funds”.

The 'Postgraduate Champion' campaign follows an NUS report last year called 'Steps toward a fairer system of postgraduate taught funding', which proposed a government-backed loan scheme for postgraduate students.
