Campaign Support

Up until September 2016, an elected Student Council set KCLSU campaign policy. This campaign is supported by policy approved by Student Council.

Impact

Launched in November 2016, the campaign collected hundreds of signatures which were handed in to members of college council demanding a halt to rising fees. Our student officers sent targetted emails to students studying in different faculties and held a vigil outside the College council where a vote on tuition fees was being held. As a result, the campaign secured a committment to not raising in tuition fees for returning home undergraduates. This kind of action, as well as campaigns across the country, led the government to freeze fees for home students at £9,250 until 2019.
