F o l l o w i n g t h e recent interest rate increases, the £ 5 0 - 6 0 rents

are no longer sufficient for this a n d the loan is steadily increasing.

WORLD OF OPPORTUNITIES

ON OFFER WITH ICI OVER CHRISTMAS

The career opportunities for graduates in the 1990's seem to be becoming increasingly diverse. As a result, more and more students are looking for their first job within organisations that are international, flexible, competitive and world leaders in technical innovation. With so much to look for, it is an advantage to get an early introduction to such an organisation and meet the people within it. Id's Christmas courses provide the ideal opportunity to find out more about the people and careers described in the corporate literature. If you're interested in attending a Christmas course in Engineering, Marketing, Physics, Chemistry or Material Science, or you just want to find out more about a career in ICI, contact your careers office and ask for the relevant ICI brochure and application form.

Yours f a i t h f u l l y

Among the people you will meet in The Times... M A T T H E W PARRIS, a former M P , writes the most illuminating and amusing Parliamentary sketches in British journalism. He combines a sharp pen with a real understanding of the rigours of Parliamentary life. He is the first man the MPs read each morning. You will find his dry humour, the manner in which he takes the pomposity out of politics, compulsive and essential reading.

N L

So what's in it for me? Firstly, Glamour. As a reader of The Times you'll soon understand the issues behind the news, the debates behind political decisions and the latest reports on your chosen fields of interest. However, you'll also find that the most appealing people tend to gravitate towards someone reading an impressive broadsheet newspaper in the refectory - a newspaper like The Times in fact.

Secondly, Money. With P R E S S P A S S you'll be able to enjoy The Times every day for half price and save rather a lot of money. It's simple: just complete the order form, tear off, and post it; we even pay the postage. In return you'll get a book of P R E S S P A S S vouchers valid for a whole year, worth almost

£50 against purchases of The Times. You can buy The Times on a daily basis (with 72 daily vouchers) or weekly, i f you have it delivered (with 40 weekly vouchers).

You simply hand your voucher to the newsagent with half the cash value, it's as easy as that. So send for your P R E S S P A S S voucher book now. It's completely free and our exhaustive research shows it's the best way to make sense of the world as we know it, w i n friends, influence people and get all the girls (or boys).

What else is in it for me? To help get you started we're offering a couple of great bonuses. Firstly, you can have 2 FREE 3 - line classified ads i n The Times worth £34.50, just the job to sell books and records, or even get a job.

A n d secondly, a prize draw every week could win you £100 - the more P R E S S P A S S vouchers you use, the greater your chance of winning, so get going and cut out the coupon now.
