What practical and cost-effective mechanisms are there for supporting part-time postgraduate students? This question was posed by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 1990. Surveys of selected departments and students in the social sciences were carried out to try to provide some answers. 'Typical' part-time postgraduate social science students study for about 15 hours a week, work full-time in education, health or local government, receive some assistance towards the costs of their studies from their employer, and are given between half a day and a day release from work per week. These patterns vary significantly, however, by subject and type of study. The great majority of students would welcome greater financial assistance, with the payment of their fees seen as the top priority.
