Campaign to reduce the additional course costs that students have to pay to complete their degrees on top of tuition fees

10:17pm on 18 Oct 17 £9000 are already outrageous, and then that on top? Also, I would like to have more transparency - how is our money actually being spent? How much is being spent on some new fancy building on another campus or for ads?
