Students join protest

Dudley College Students' Union will be joining over 30,000 students from around the country today to take part in the National Union of Students (NUS) event 'Fund Our Future: Stop Education Cuts' National Demo in central London.

The Students' Union feel this will be a great opportunity to show that students are actively interested in politics that will affect them and their futures and are passionate to protect their right to an education.

The national demo also known as 'Fund Our Future' is part of NUS's strategy to influence the Coalition Government in reconsidering the funding cuts/changes to education and the impact that this will have. NUS, UCU and our Union firmly believe that education changes the lives of individuals, families and communities.

The students also believe that education and skills will also be key to our economic recovery and we believe that we should support people in their choice to better themselves rather than allowing more barriers to be created.
