Higher Education Bill Advances through Parliament

The Higher Education and Research Bill has advanced to the committee stage of its assent through parliament.

The Bill, which will make considerable changes to universities, began as a Green Paper in which the Government consulted on proposed changes to the higher education (HE) system. This then moved to the White Paper in which the Government set out its priorities and turned them into a Bill to move through Parliament.

Officers Residential Trip

Last week the new sabbatical officer team 2016/17 went away for a week’s training in Whitstable to learn loads of skills that will make us better officers! We spent 6 days training and 1 day on a team bonding trip on the river Stour learning to Canoe. The training was a mixture of learning more about Kent Union as an organisation and learning about ourselves as representatives as students.

Welcome to your 16-17 Officer Team!

Congratulations to Rory, Ruth, Dave, Clara and Elliott!
