Challenging the status of interest free student loans

October – 2016

We supported the New Zealand Initiative as it released its report Decade of Debt: the cost of interest-free student loans. Focusing on New Zealand's interest-free student loan scheme, the report found the scheme has not achieved its policy objectives of helping students from poorer backgrounds access tertiary education. The Initiative challenged parties across the political spectrum to change the policy.

We leveraged our extensive networks in the Parliamentary Press Gallery and wider media to secure prominent coverage for the report on the morning of its release, with the report featuring on Paul Henry, Newstalk ZB, Newshub, Radio New Zealand and across Fairfax media outlets.
