STOP STUDENT ESTATE AGENCIES making their OWN rules for lets
Had to pay a months rent and a half up front? Lived in non-humane conditions with your Estate Agent/Landlord being complete non-responsive? Been denied your deposit returned to you based on non-existent damage? Paid for damage to be repaired that never got repaired for the next tenants? It's not fair that Students are taken for a complete ride by Estate Agents that specialise in Student Lets. There are no laws in place to protect us, so we need to speak out to protect ourselves.
Petition to Stagecoach bus company for angus, Wisharts travel arbroath, Abroath college
Angus towns to bring back the 'college bus' in the morning.
I've made this petition on behalf of myself and many other students who are attending college this year in Arbroath. The reason for it is that there is no longer any stagecoach busses that run in the morning, however in previous years there was always a bus running anytime between 8.00am and 8.20am from Brechin at least. Im not sure if this is the same for everywhere in Angus but in Brechin we now only have the option of getting the bus at 7.30AM, which in itself is a pain because it gets us all there far too early, but also it seems that the travel cards that we are given so that we don't have to spend heaps of money on bus fares to and from the college do not work on the wisharts travel busses as I just found out the hard way. Which means I have missed my classes today and im sure this has been a problem for many other students this year. With so many people relying on public transport it's a real shame that the Angus council or stagecoach themselves have taken this away from all of us and made it a lot harder for everyone by doing so. So please sign this petition to help bring back the college bus and failing that, to at least make the other busses accessible using our travel cards. Thank you to anyone who signs this, I will keep people informed of any progress.
Petition to Southampton Solent University
To have the Southampton Solent studios accessible for students over the weekend
As a Southampton Solent University student I feel that the amount of work I have to do should be achievable through having available time to work in the studio. Therefore I have started this petition due to finding that models, make-up artists, stylists etc. may not have time to attend shoots I have planned during the weekdays, which causes a difficulty to conduct my work. An easy solution for this would be to gain access to the studio during the weekends as I can work fluidly with a team of professionals whilst maintaining a timetable that corresponds with everyone. This could be then presented to the University to show interest to keep the studios open over the weekends.

Higher loan rates for creative media students at SAE Audio Institute
I think it is unfair that students studying creative media and audio at SAE institutions in Australia are only entitled to a 10,000 dollar loan when all the diploma's are $18,000+. This forces them to pay the other $8,000+ upfront or pay a hefty $211 a month for three years (SAE student loan scheme). A lot of these students, including me are straight out of high school and are receiving government benefits for being full time students, and these benefits are very little that the students must use to pay for rent, food, utility bills and other living responsibilities. Therefore, students can't afford these monthly payments whilst they are studying which puts them through financial stress. Especially, if they are living away from home, independently and their parents can not support them. So please, I am asking you on behalf of the creative media students at SAE Australia wide to allow them the maximum 15,000 dollar vet student loan. Doing this will allow students to concentrate on their studies and relieve financial stress because their monthly payments will be substantially lower. We aren't asking you to bring back the VET Fee Help scheme. We are just asking you to to help us study financial stress free again Thank you
