#WIM2016. Inspired by the editors of our favourite magazines, the producers of our favourite television shows. The friends who don't believe in themselves enough to write a newspaper article and the school girls who don't aspire to University because of the lack of females celebrated in the media.
Ultimately, if we cannot look after ourselves, we are unable to look after others. This is not me saying 'don't be an officer' or 'give me a break'. It is an appeal to everyone to take up the issue of mental health as a political priority. To talk, as well as act. The student movement will be stronger if we all put our minds to it.
There is absolutely no shame in struggling or finding it hard to be open and ask for help. There's equally no shame in not knowing how to approach and support someone who is battling with their mental health conditions. The key is to try and communicate as best as you can.
Placements are the Holy Grail of the student summer, but, hopefully, by following these few pieces of advice and constantly refreshing your Hotmail inbox, you'll soon be in need of some credit on that Oyster Card. Good luck...
Of course trans women have a different experience of womanhood to cisgender women, but excluding them from 'women's' spaces is basically denying the entire existence of their identity. How can you properly exist without being acknowledged as a real person for who you actually are?
A maintenance grant provided me with hope and confidence that I did belong at university. Without the grant, I would never have entertained the prospective of university. This government seems hell bent on severely restricting the options of minority groups and reinforcing the stereotype that only the privilege should attend university.
It's no coincidence the government has pushed this change through as quietly as possible. There are just months to go before local, mayoral and assembly elections across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This isn't democracy. But you can still register to vote up to three weeks before the elections...
I'm not striking for my own benefit, I don't want rent for free and UCL needs to know that we aren't naïve students who can be swept under the carpet. In short, I have friends who can't get by with the money they have and working even a single job is sometimes unfeasible.
As we see a worrying resurgence of scapegoating and far right extremist politics, we must do more to ensure that students of all ages can benefit from that lesson of history, and not just in the class room. Educating future leaders and building a stronger society through active citizens is the only way we can be assured that we will never forget the Holocaust.
By the logic of employability, you don't have a job because something is wrong with you. You do not live up to the requirements. You're not the kind of person they want to employ. You do not supply what the labour market demands.
This week LSE will be deciding whether or not to approve the increase to halls. If it is to be genuinely committed to supporting students at university, they should reject this and implement a freeze as a minimum starting point. Because LSE, the rent is just too damn high.
Are you a student? Do you worry about your job prospects? If your degree makes you employable? If those 9k fees were worth it? Then you're thinking about your employability. There is not a University that does not have an employability strategy...
It's no surprise that students who are estranged are at a greater disadvantage then those with supportive families. All in all, I want my society to help make the lives of estranged students at MMU a little easier, and make the MMU community a more estrangement-friendly place. And if I can manage that, then I'll be happy.
It is a well known fact that the human brain has the ability to make an assessment about someone within the first three seconds of a meeting. Most of the time this happens without us being aware of that. People living amongst large number of other human beings, some of whom are far from nice and pleasant, have to be able to do so as a matter of survival.
Scrapping maintenance grants is a desperate attempt by Osborne to find savings wherever he can because as a Chancellor he has failed consistently to meet any target he has ever set himself. This proposed saving of £1.57billion is a drop in the ocean compared to our £1.5trillion worth of debt that has increased under Osborne's time as Chancellor. Again Osborne has pound signs in his eyes with no idea of the actual worth.
