Yesterday (8th December 2015), a group of students from Edge Hill University and Liverpool travelled incredibly early in the morning to London for the #CutTheCosts Westminster Lobby at the Houses of Parliament.
#CutTheCosts is a campaign run by NUS (National Union of Students) concerning an increase in student debt. This includes preventing a rise in university fees and the scrapping of maintenance grants, and instead, turning them into repayable loans. Therefore, this will land upcoming students with even more debt. Find out more about the campaign here.
