Students already have a lot on their plate - from keeping their grades up to building a healthy social life. This, however, doesn't seem to stop some ...
In order to ensure that Pride events are safe and accessible to all LGBT people, including those who have experienced police violence, I will be saying to Pride organisers: have individual police at Pride, but ask them to leave their badge and uniform at home.
As my great uncle Alan Turing once said, 'we can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.' I couldn't agree more.
This election is especially important in a climate where so few trans people are being paid to work on trans issues, and unemployment rates for trans people doing any sort of work well exceed the national average. Whilst we should be proud of the NUS for breaking new ground here, it feels almost bitter-sweet that 'trans person gets a job' is a cause for national celebration.
The earlier we start to make change, individually or as a whole, and showing young people the value we place on them and their voices, the more benefits we all get from it in the future. Representation of young voices has never gone far enough and now is our time to make our voices heard thoroughly and truly.
Our government's policy in education remains one that aims to sell it off to the highest bidder. My union's vision, as I believe that of the majority of people in the UK, is that education should remain a right, to be enjoyed by all, at any time in life. Such a vision is one worth fighting for, and one which we will continue to put forward, with others, until it is achieved.
This is the story behind the teller. I work 7 days a week. I have four (and a half) jobs. I am an academic mentor at a Sixth Form College, a Private Tutor, a Nanny, a Blogger and a Postgrad Student all in one. Honestly, sometimes it feels like I literally have no life.
As we confront unprecedented political and economic changes both in the UK and across the world, just how important are the arts to our society? Do we...
You have to try and stay as logical as you can if you're starting to stress out - I know it's easier said than done, but it's possible. If someone else asks a question, your reaction is probably either agreeing, or not being bothered at all. It will be the same for others.
I was 18 years old, I had just lost my job; no money, no place of my own; and my boyfriend was at college. I wasn't ready to have a child, and I was absolutely terrified. I was lucky though, because I had a supportive partner and family. I was lucky I had a health service which recognised my right to decide what happened to my body and my right to professional support. I was lucky to live in a country where the government did not consider it a criminal offence to choose.
There's no doubt that craft and the Crafts Council are in a state of flux. We've witnessed an unprecedented rise in the popularity of making, encapsul...
How much further can we go before we are forced to admit that continuously saving money could mean we have to rescue education? The conversation must continue, but its focus needs to change. Let's stop talking about cuts and start talking about investment.
All in all, I'm pretty bowled over by what he does for a living as you can probably tell, and standing next to George Clooney is definitely helping.
Although the costs factor in, the reason we attend University (on the most part), is to better prepare us for adult, working life, so we should be provided with the best standard of teaching and support to prepare us for that. Emphasis on the should, Department of Education.
We are most concerned about the hygiene and cleanliness of our homes, but what about the other place we spend up to 40 hours each week - the office?
Last year, students took to the streets to save the NHS bursary. This Saturday, we will again. This time though, it's about more than student funding - it is about the future of our health service itself.
