Student Fees Protest 2 years on from the first

Thousands of students are set to march in London against the rising costs of university and further education.

It will be the first national student protest since a wave of unrest over tuition fees two years ago.

The National Union of Students (NUS) has also published a survey suggesting voters have not forgiven MPs who broke election promises over raising fees.

“Education should open doors, but the government is slamming them shut,” said NUS leader, Liam Burns.

“The damaging effects of recent changes to education have restricted access for future students and created new barriers for those currently studying,” he said.
