Spain’s Ministry of Education has recognised that university students now get around €300 less per grant than they used to.
In the last few weeks hundreds of students have complained to the government about their grants but these aren’t the usual student complaints as in 2012-2013 they got €3,101 and in 2013-2014 they got €2,824.
Not only are they getting less but they are also complaining because they are not getting them on time which means they are having trouble signing up for the courses they want to do.
Several government ministers have taken up the plight of the students as they see it as a bad move for the country to mess up the education of the next generation.
Ana Gonzalez, Asturias councillor for Education, said that Spain must do away with the “double system” in which those who have money can have an education and those who don’t have money are left to fend for themselves.
