    Abstract

    This paper will critically analyse why student support for part-time students ‘is not sufficient’ and discuss some of the challenges facing the Browne Review. It will explore the scale of financial support for part-timers and who benefits and who loses, calling on the findings of a recent national study of 3,700 part-time students. The paper will assess the effectiveness of this student support in promoting greater participation, or in exacerbating existing social inequalities and injustices in the treatment of part-time students relative to full- time students. Finally, it will examine some of the options for reforming the current system of support for part-time students.
