To provide a forum for all parliamentarians to develop greater understanding of the range of issues affecting students in further and higher education. To ensure that student views and experiences are heard in Parliament, facilitate interaction between students and MPs and Peers, and ensure education policy takes account of student views.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
