As our seventh Telephone Campaign took place we knew we would be facing challenging times ahead, with the government Annual Fund 2011Teaching grant being cut by 80% this year and fees set to increase in 2012 - this certainly gave our callers plenty to discuss. Students and alumni shared experiences of College life and students had the opportunity to hear about life after graduation and for alumni to hear details of the latest news and events from College. We are very grateful to all those who signed up to our careers network to help advise students as a result of the campaign.
