It's an unusually sunny Saturday afternoon in Battersea Park, and I am taking deep breaths to stop myself from hyperventilating. I have just dropped my iPhone. My uninsured life support, with a not-too-shabby price tag of £600, has transformed into a pile of broken glass and chipped plastic mixed amongst gravel on the pavement. Someone might as well have just hit me. Did I really just say that? Yes, yes I did.

For students everywhere it has always provided a liberating period between one busy university year and an even busier year to come. Consequently, students have never failed to embrace the many benefits of the summer break. However, with the controversial rise in tuition fees to £9000 per year the necessity of university has been debated.
