LUU is proud to announce lots of new spaces for students this year, as well as a refreshed old favourite. Our year-long Union Upgrade is coming to a close, old spaces have been spruced up and new spaces are in place ready for you to use in time for this academic year.
As of 01 July, we have a brand new Student Exec. The six winners of the Leadership Race Jack, Jess, Zaki, George, Natasha and Chloe are in post and ready to work on the policies that you voted for.
Your Student Exec and School Reps are urging the University to continue to fight and resist the introduction of some of the most harmful aspects of the Higher Education and Research Bill by marching to University Senate next Wednesday 22 March.
The government have announced plans to allow universities to offer fast-track degrees. Melz explores why this could be dangerous to your education.
It is in this spirit that the University and Leeds University Union (LUU) have been considering the Government’s Higher Education and Research Bill, particularly in relation to the new Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and its link to student fees.
