Overview

It’s no secret, we’ve been failed by successive governments.   

We need to start over, and get it right this time. So let’s take matters into our own hands.  

Collectively, students, workers and communities are building a new vision for education!  

 

So, what does that mean?  

  • Fully funded: higher and further education to be funded by governments - free at the point of use for students - with proper pay, pensions and conditions for staff across education and beyond 
  • Accessible: creating safe and inclusive spaces – built for students here and now - and uprooting disablism in our education  
  • Lifelong: there to support us from cradle to grave - think less restrictive, more fluid & flexible  
  • Democratised: giving students more power and agency over our own learning  

What is the student strike?

Students and staff have used strikes to show their power for generations. Think about the climate strikes, and think about the uni staff walking out in December for fair pay. If you took part in them you’ll know: when we come together, we create community, build our movement and become unstoppable. 

That’s what we’re doing now. 

NUS are calling for students to organise to get themselves and people from their unis and colleges to London on 2nd March 2022.

"We will take over central London, and build our own education for the day – it’s a protest, it’s a party, and it’s something we come together for. "

Registering for the event via Arts SU.

Arts SU will get in touch with you regarding more information about getting involved in the strike and support in travelling to the protest location in central London.
