For a campaign to be officially supported by KCLSU, it needs to have the support of our student membership which is done through an online petition. You have to add your name to the petition to support the campaign.

Campaigns need to be supported by 150 KCLSU members to become a KCLSU supported campaign or 75 association members to become a KCLSU Association Supported campaign.

Once the threshold is reached, it means the campaign will receive guidance and support from KCLSU staff to create a strategy and deliver the campaign aim. You can find out more on our campaigns pages.

Campaign objectives

1) Work  with the university to expand the flexible payment plan for self-funded postgraduate students so that by the next academic year every postgraduate student has 3 instalment plans.

2) After the deposit fee campaign, the College conceded and deposit fees were halved for home students to £500.  However, the deposit for international students remained the same. Lobby for international student deposits to be halved from £2,000 to £1,000 by the next admissions cycle.

3) Lobby the university to trial the removal of the deposit fee for all postgraduate taught programmes in one department.

4) Lobby for greater provision of scholarships and bursaries for postgraduate study.
