The UK Government are planning severe cuts to university funding. Coupled with Lord Browne’s recommendations for a new HE funding system, the sector will be facing the most challenging time in its history.
We, the undersigned, petition the Prime Minister to not consider the withdrawal of any amount of government funding from the higher education sector and instead invest in universities as a strategy for economic recovery from the recession.
We further petition the Prime Minister to not allow an increase in tuition fees and instead consider more progressive alternatives such as a graduate tax advocated by the NUS.
