James Shaw © Hannah Peters/Getty Images James Shaw The Greens are set to explain their student support plan, which they say will fix the problems brought about by the rising cost of living and high rents.

Party leader James Shaw says students are being forced into more and more debt.

"Tertiary study should be a way out of poverty, not a way into it," he said.

"Our policy is designed to encourage more students into post-graduate study and reduce financial pressures on all students."

Mr Shaw is launching the policy at Otago University around noon on Wednesday.
