Fairer student grants for Brighton Students

This petition had 1,220 supporters

Rents in Brighton are far more expensive than other parts of the UK. Current data from lists the average rent in Brighton as £1499 pcm and in Sheffield £765 pcm. I believe it is inequitable that students studying in Brighton do not receive additional funding similar to that enjoyed by students in London. Many students are forced to take 12 month contracts out for their rent and are paying extortionate sums for poor housing. I believe the cost of housing should be a factor in the grant calculation as it is by far the biggest expense and varies wildly across the UK. I would like the formula for Student Finance revisited.
