We asked students: "What's your 'Top 10 wish list' of things we could change for you?"

You said:

Students Top 10 wish list

1

SCRAP TUITION FEES - While Labour introduced tuition fees for higher education and would now reduce them to £6k per year, we believe that education is a right which should be funded through progressive taxation.

 

2

CANCEL STUDENT DEBT - That right, we will write off all your “outstanding debts” on student loans. Undergraduate tuition fees and maintenance loans, and any resulting interest would be written off.

 

3

DECENT HOMES - Student housing is often expensive and poorly maintained. We would cap rents and regulate private housing so that landlords can’t treat you unfairly.

 

4

FAIR PAY IN HIGHER EDUCATION - Everyone working in universities should receive a fair wage. The highest-paid university employees should not receive a salary more than ten times that of the lowest-paid employees.

 

5

PROTECT INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS - Universities should be hubs of multiculturalism. Greens believe that the location of someone's birth should not be a determinant of the education they receive or can afford.

 

6

CHEAP ENERGY BILLS - We would insulate homes and investment in clean, renewable energy so we have a reliable source of energy for the future.

 

7

TACKLE YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT- We would create lasting green jobs and apprenticeships for a more secure future for young people

 

8

END UNPAID INTERNSHIPS - Internships can be valuable sources of work experience, but we believe they should be paid

 

9

A LIVING WAGE- Low pay is a major issue, especially for young people. We believe that the minimum wage should be raised to £10/ hour so that every single job pays enough for somebody to live on.

 

10

BETTER TRANSPORT - We would re-nationalise rail services and create affordable public transport for all
