Yesterday Leeds University Union staged The Big Debate; a safe space for students, staff, and members of the general public to debate on the theoretical possibility of Free Education.  Bradley Escorcio and Bethany Bartley-Jeacock fought against the right to have free education in the UK, stating that it was not economically viable, and that we should encourage apprenticeships as a form of Higher Education.  Tom Dixon, Harry Shotton, and Nick Raikes argued for the right to have free eduction.  They suggested that UK spends far too much on defence and that this money should be redistributed into the education system.  They also suggested that far too many teenagers are put off university because of the cost, and that this needs to be changed.photo (1)

Perhaps to a student audience living in Leeds, mention of an evening in Canal Mills would have certain connotations. On Friday the fourth of October I attended the Brewers Market at this reputable club with certifiable beer experts Jack.. and Mark Ball. Having spent time in the Mills at ungodly hours the first thought I had as I arrived was that it seemed smaller. But, as I picked up my free pint glass and wandered into the main room,brewers market [+]

We have some amazing core shows that you can be part of at Leeds Student Radio. All the forms to apply to be a part of one of these shows are now open. You can find the links below:

Application deadline is Friday 3rd October at 12pm (midday).

With the intro meeting now done the show proposal form is now live! You have until Midday on Friday 3rd October to submit your proposal.

Our 3 top tips for a successful proposal:

  1. Be original – We want new, creative and exciting ideas that will compliment the diversity of our schedule. As always, the word ‘Banter’ is forbidden, as is the word ‘Lols’ (even with a ‘z’).
  2. Take your time – The best show proposals are well planned and thought out. Don’t leave it until the last minute.
  3. Think about your audience – Try and appeal your proposal to a student audience and think what their interests or tastes might be.

You can find the link to the proposal form here. Don’t forget we also have several ‘core’ shows which must be applied for separately, relevant contact details are on the form.

Sir Alan Langlands is the Vice-Chancellor of The University of Leeds.  This basically means that he is the Chief Executive of our university.  As a student, you might not have the opportunity to meet him until your graduation ceremony, and even then the handshake will be swift and no-nonsense.  Which is why the two biggest media societies at Leeds University Union decided to take this opportunity to ask questions on your behalf, and find out exactly what the V.C. thinks about graduate employment, funding cuts, and Freshers’ Week.
