Labour had a fantastic stand at this year’s Freshers Fair at Sussex University this week. I went to Sussex Univeristy and remember going around the stalls as a student…it seems like only yesterday!
It was fantastic to meet so many students who had travelled from all corners of the country and from across the globe in order to study at one of the best universities in the world. And, of course, to live in one of the best cities in the world.
I listened to a lot of concerns freshers had about the cost of studying, with housing issues a particular challenge. I couldn’t help dispensing advice and words of wisdom to some of the first year students too – and here they were thinking they’d escaped their parents!
All the best, Peter
