November 4th will provide a chance for students from across the UK to voice their opposition to the policies currently affecting Higher Education, from rising tuition fees and the abolition of maintenance grants to funding and the PREVENT agenda.

In the meantime, if you’re looking to get out and about for Bonfire Night this weekend, don’t forget to buy your tickets to the Kenilworth Fireworks display at SUHQ Reception. Have a great week!
