In years to come, ifs University College hopes that positive financial news arising from its young persons money index will take its own place in the yearly news cycle, with freshers' guides not needing to include financial advice.
I did not support Corbyn in the leadership election, but remain grateful for his instilment of hope for change, both socially and politically for young and old. His vision looks to the future in optimism, and the future is something young poeple are 100% of. Even if his policy is just 'utopian', it has still brought some of the disengaged masses back to politics, and that can never be seen as a bad thing.
Your first few weeks are going to be tough no matter how much you prepare for them. But as time goes on it will all become much much easier. As soon as classes start and routine becomes a thing everything will simply fall into place. So try not to over think things and as hard it is just go with flow as everything will turn out okay in the end, I promise!
Media terminology demonstrates that language has power. A single headline in popular national newspapers such as The Sun can make or break political candidates, or set the tone for how the public view issues such as the current refugee crisis, or the fate of the European Union.
Apprenticeships are attracting a huge amounts of interest from across the political spectrum. We've come a long way from the days when Tony Blair is said to have joked that political interest in vocational education was such that he could make a declaration of war in a speech about skills and no-one would ever notice.
The Camp has been developed in a way to suit the refugees living there. In the 'Jungle', the refugees have built a church, mosque, shops, a book store and even a night club. However, the living standards including personal hygiene is lacking, tremendously...

If you are friend or a loved one with a mental health condition reading this now, please do not give up on them.
It is my dearest hope that this disaster will be a springboard for change, and thanks to it, maybe one day the LGBTQ+ community will get our own Selma, or 12 Years A Slave, a story that doesn't flinch away from its subject matter, that takes a stand for itself - and that truly invites everyone to stand with it.
Prevent is part of the UK government's counter-terrorism strategy designed to respond to the ideological challenges of terrorism and extremism. The strategy has been in place since Labour was in government; however, this new law now makes it mandatory...
The concept of time is weird in hospital... weeks either fly by or an hour seems like a century. There's laughter, tears, anger, struggles and overwhelming home sickness as the world outside feels a million miles away from my reach.
Should the EU fail again in a future crisis, whether economic or humanitarian, the tide will surely turn in the 'Out' campaign's favour. Unless pro-EU campaigners swiftly make a positive case for the future of the EU, and why Britain needs to be a part of it, a 'Brexit' could be a very real prospect by 2017.
Dear Tom Watson... I was so heartened, like many, to see Labour's new leader Jeremy Corbyn call for a 'kinder politics'.
