NUI Galway Is On The March!

Join us to march for publicly funded education and investment in the grant on Wednesday the 4th of October in Dublin and don’t take no for an answer.

Education Is… Is a USI campaign calling on the Irish government and the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills to make a historic long-term decision and invest in the publicly-funded third level education model. An income-contingent loan scheme is not a viable solution to third-level funding. This system will create a burden of €20,000+ debt on anyone who wishes to attend third-level education.
