We’re for you, not for profit It’s finally here. We’ve been a building site for 18 months but now all of that pain is gone as we open the brand new Percy Gee. There’s so much to show you, we’ve had to make the loop bigger!

Well, it’s here. The summer is over and it’s time to get back to Uni. To all those fresh faces, welcome, you couldn’t have picked a better Uni or a better time. For those of you coming back, you’re not going to recognise the place. Since you’ve been gone we’ve gutted the building and 18 months and just over £16 million later we have what we think is the best Students’ Union in the country. It’s not just the building that’s changed, we now have Student Parliament look out for information on how to stand and make a difference. So ladies and gentlemen, we give you a brand new Percy Gee and the biggest Fresh Festival we’ve ever had, excited?

Kate is the Union’s Welfare and International Officer, to get in touch email su-wiofficer@le.ac.uk

2010 marks a very important year in terms of the university funding debate. With the Lord Browne Review coming out this year we are facing a situation where students are looking at paying out £6000 per year on tuition fees. Add on the costs of accommodation, books, social life and other living expenses the average student will graduate with £40,000 worth of debt. To put this in perspective - An Arts graduate degree premium, the monetary benefit of having a degree, is only £34,000. Suddenly the economic argument for going to University looks a little weak. It is inevitable that our society will regress to the bad old days where only the elite can afford to attend University.

“£6,000 per year on tuition fees” Over the past year your Students’ Union has been working tirelessly;

appearing on the BBC and local press to stress the importance of maintain the cap and getting

“the average student will graduate with £40,000 worth of debt” the support of our local MP, Sir Peter Soulsby. However, the time has come for you, the student, to stand up and make yourself heard! In November your Students’ Union will be joining the NUS on a national demo in London against increased fees. If you feel as passionately as I do about this get involved in the campaign, either from coming along and supporting the protest or helping us rally support. Feel free to contact me for more information at owen@leicesterunion.com Owen Jones Campaigns & Involvement Officer
