Hi all,

So I am just about to release my campaign which is called Cut the Costs and it is aimed at helping save student money. To be more specific it’s for placements as Every Student at Leeds Trinity University is required to undertake a placement during Level 4 and Level 5 of their study and as a result we will be lobbing the university to give you (The student) more financial support.


An example of costs that face student face nationally;


  • Between 2011-2014 25% Undergraduates and 21% of Postgraduates paid between £100 and £199 on hidden course costs, further giving the rational as to why we are running this camping.

This is also being done to raise awareness of how much money you’re actually spending at university, for example placements (E.g. Transport) as in our survey last year found that a lot of students did not know about the financial support available for placement.

How are we going to do this?

  • Producing a survey for student to fill out that will be asking basic information such as distance travelled for placement, the amount of money you spend on placements… these are just 2 areas that we will be asking you about.
  • Having meetings with lecturers to get their support and ask them for help in to raise the awareness of the importance of this and how it can effect students.

To summarise Leeds Trinity University have the fact that they are the only university that have placements imbedded into their degrees, but we feel that the support student get is not good enough and therefore we are running this campaign. I personally feel that if the university make the changes it will not only help so many student but will also give them another Unique Selling Points (USP). This is what I like to call a Win Win, the best kind of win J

Please support us by filling in this questionaire and using the hashtag #Cutthecosts
