If the government wishes to boost local economies, create jobs, sustain our world class HE sector and build an outward-looking 'global Britain', they should work to strengthen its foundations.
It is possible to build an alternative without pandering to discriminatory, backwards and racist ideas. As an experienced anti-racist campaigner, Trevor Phillips should know better. Meanwhile the snowflakes will continue to build a movement for a society that enables freedom and liberty for all, not just the privileged few.
The new change in GCSEs has been the biggest educational reform for a long while. Transforming an exam system that has been used for a very long time ...
February 21st 1952, Dhaka. The fallen bodies of students and teachers lie scattered amid a campus-turned-battlefield, as tear gas lingers in bloody ha...
The pro-Safe Space brigade always give the same defence for their restrictive policies, claiming that implementing rules on what language is acceptable and how people should interact, allow greater freedom of expression for marginalised, oppressed groups. The argument that more censorship equates to greater free speech is nothing short of Orwellian.
We need more people to realize cybersecurity is an interesting and exciting career so we can have the skills and expertise for the future that we need to protect people, governments and organisations from the menace of professional cybercriminality.
Those who seek to portray my generation as delicate flowers do so because they wish to preserve the freedom of expression for some, but not others. They believe that liberty should exist for the privileged, even if it's at the expense of the rest of us.
This is a small battle in a huge conflict. It is a conflict between a state that provides for, nurtures and empowers it citizens, and a free-market, free-for-all that leaves all but a few worse off, that erodes notions like collective effort and genuine altruism and replaces them with individual greed and cut-throat competition.

We call upon all Muslim students to carry on being the drivers of change and a source of good for our communities. Let us carry on building relationships and not allowing creeping hate to enter our world.

It is no surprise that student mental health is something which needs to be taken extremely seriously- it affects not only their mental well-being but also their learning, resulting in drop-outs and failed assignments.

So you know you need to start your revision, as you keep getting told by every adult around you, but where do you start? It's all a bit of a mystery. You know you need a plan, but you still want to have a life! How can you revise, get to Zumba class, go to your mates party and actually sleep?!
The ruling by Donald Trump to place a temporary ban on Muslims from selected countries entering the USA has provoked global outrage. While a similar ban on students wanting to study in the UK seems (hopefully) inconceivable, when it comes to obtaining entry visas bona fide students and staff from Muslim countries can face an uphill struggle.
If there was ever a time for the Government to reconsider their opposition to statutory SRE, it is now. That is why, later today, I will lead a Parliamentary debate calling on the Government to finally make SRE a statutory requirement in all state-funded schools - including academies, free schools and any new grammar schools which they set up.
As NUS president, I have made solidarity with migrants a central element of my priority campaign - Liberate Education. I want to make our movement's solidarity practical and effective.
