We pay £9,250 a year in tuition fees. We live in overpriced accommodation, whether owned by profit-hungry universities or private landlords who don’t expect us to stand up for our rights. Our teaching is palmed off onto underpaid doctorial candidates. When we graduate, we can think ourselves lucky to earn over £21,000 per year, particularly if we’re not STEM students. The Student Loan Company, to whom we probably owe more money that we can really imagine, like to keep us confused about interest rates, how much debt is outstanding, and whether they’ve been stalking us on social media. Plus, if it all gets too much whilst we’re still studying, the wait for university funded mental health support could be months long.

I knew a couple of dishes that depended heavily on big jars of sauce – bolognese, pasta bake, curry, and my mother sent me with a folder of recipes from home, but I was struggling to find tasty, homemade meals that I could cook quickly and easily.

A Freshers Guide to Sexual Health Services

Monday 1 October 2018Student Journalists

As freshers week approaches, new students up and down the country will be buying their new bed linen, poring over events timetables, and praying they really do know how to feed themselves. But – though you may not be discussing this bit with your parents – for many, many students freshers week also presents itself as an opportunity for sexual adventures.
