The referendum is a response to the lack of student consultation carried about by the University. The last student consultation on a 24-hour library was run in 2013, when … Read the rest

It’s good to talk

In General

As you will know, last week marked the beginning of graduation ceremonies on campus. Droves of students have been turning up in their finest dress, both excited and nervous. The words on most graduands’ lips spoke excitement for this official-feeling step into the real world, and mostly nervous about this ‘strange’ handshake they had never encountered before… well that and falling over in front of family, friends and lectures. What can we say, so far the ceremonies have been nothing but a great success, campus being blessed with beautiful sunshine to accompany the celebrations.

Even though professional photographs are available … Read the rest
