In one of my blogs last semester I talked about the Diamond Review which was to be published in September following a lengthy review into higher education funding, student finance and support in Wales.
Hello! And welcome back to the start of semester 2. I really hope that you exams are going well, assignments are in and that you’re looking forward to an exciting new term at Aber.
?Welcome back everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas holiday and New Year celebrations.
When the academic year starts, around 9,000 students come to live in Aberystwyth; almost doubling the population of the town and community, and bringing life into what can sometimes be a quiet seaside town. Yet here at the Students’ Union we are endlessly hearing about students who have had poor experiences accessing their local health services.
It’s safe to say that national Higher Education (HE) is in a huge state of flux at the moment, and a lot of changes have happened or are about to happen which will drastically affect what it is like to be a student in the UK. But what actually is going on?
