    I have searched for this but I can't find it.
    George Osborne promised in the Dec 2014 Statement that there would be postgrad loans similar to the undergrad ones already in place.

    What happened to this? Has this been implemented? Any chance of this happening before 2016/2017?

    The results of the consultation should have been published a couple of weeks ago, but weren't. They are now due 'in the autumn'

    George Osborne didn't promise - just because something's in an election manifesto, doesn't mean it's going to happen, especially as it was a Coalition idea not a Conservative one.

    I wouldn't hold your breath, sorry

    Same old story. Osborne gave students some hope before the election. After the election, plans of election postgrad loans are in the dustbin. Some cynics predicted that it won't be implemented anyway.
