Student rally first

The first Universities UK chief to address a student demonstration Professor Roderick Floud recently told students at an NUS rally against student hardship that universities and their students had managed to keep student hardship a headline story since the general election, but that giving students adequate financial support shouldn't be at the expense of the institutions themselves. He also challenged the notion that widening access leads to lower standards: "Today's universities and their degrees certainly aren't what they used to be," he said. "We would be letting students down if they were."
