Stop DEL Cuts



Stop DEL Cuts

Who's running the campaign

Your entire Student Officer team.

What stuff we want to change and why we want to change it

Your Union is here to represent you and your views and run missions to change stuff - be it to do with your course, the University, the Union itself or the world around you.

You elected seven full-time Student Officers to do just that and they are jumping into action right now to campaign to Stop DEL Cuts.

We want the NI Assembly to reconsider the proposed 10.8% cut to the funding for The Department for Employment and Learning.

This cut will have a huge impact on you as a student and also on prospective students - tuition fees could rise, subjects and schools may close, and student places will be reduced.

We want to campaign to Stop DEL Cuts to make sure that you and other current students aren't affected and that prospective students don't have to be forced to study elsewhere.

How we are going to change it

Your Student Officers have created the 'Stop DEL Cuts' campaign. But they need your help!
