The University of Northampton Students’ Union notes:

  1. The Coalition Government has already announced more than £1.5bn of cuts to further and higher education.
  2. 150,000 qualified applicants will miss out on a university place and many thousands more will face huge increases in the cost of local college courses.
  3. All indications are that the Comprehensive Spending Review will see further budget cuts removing £1 from every £4 for our colleges and universities.
  4. Other countries are investing massively in the expansion of education.


The University of Northampton Students’ Union believes:

  1. Education is a public good just like health and social care. Price should not be a factor in accessing it.
  2. Education changes the lives of individuals, families and communities.
  3. Cutting education and skills budgets has a detrimental affect on the society and the economy.
  4. Jobs, student places, funding for teaching and access itself are at risk from the Coalition Government and together we must fight back to protect ourselves, our values and our communities.

The University of Northampton Students’ Union resolves

  1. To fully support and participate in the NUS & UCU demonstration on Wednesday 10 November 2010 in central London.
  2. To ensure that as many students as possible are aware of the cuts and marketisation agenda and are mobilised to campaign against them.
  3. To work with trade unions and other organisations to secure support for this mobilisation.
  4.  To mandate the entire executive to report on the progress of this work at each meeting.
