Furthermore, he also stated that there is public funding in UK for high-cost subjects as well as high-cost students who have come from the backgrounds of low-income and so they were eligible for support financially or those who are unable to pay back their loans can have written off their loans after 30 years. He also praised the value of the role of higher education in the civil society's support in the country's development, but stated that the spending of UK on the overseas education aid was very low and shocking.
