    Thousands of WM students protest over student fees


    Thousands of university staff and students from across the West Midlands were taking to the streets of London today in protest at plans to treble tuition fees.
    About 2,500 students from the region’s universities were heading to the capital for the mass demonstration against cuts to education funding and higher student fees.
    The rally, which has been organised by the University and College Union (UCU) and National Union of Students (NUS), will see up to 10,000 protesters march through central London and past the Houses of Parliament in the wake of huge cuts to colleges and universities.
    Universities Minister David Willetts last week outlined proposals to raise the tuition fee cap to £6,000 by 2012 – and enable institutions to charge up to £9,000 in “exceptional circumstances”.
