Cost of Education Protest Weds 24th Nov

Join us at 2pm on Wednesday 24th of November for the Galway protest about the cost of education. If you are fed up with high fees, the rising cost of living, the soaring price of accommodation and the underinvestment in higher education then join us to demand action to end this crisis.

  • FEES: The Republic of Ireland has the highest student fees in the EU. Higher Education Students in Northern Ireland pay even more, on average
  • HOUSING: Rents over €1,000 per room/month. Designated student accommodation being ‘redesignated’ for the wealthy. Increasing competition with young professionals for scarce beds.
  • INVESTMENT: If the government cared about higher education, they’d invest in research, teaching and the student experience. The experience of students in Ireland in recent years is of neglect and indifference.

Angry yet? Make your voice heard on Wednesday 24th of November. More info here.

Glanadh Suas Amárach

An bhfuil tú ar fáil amárach? Bígí linn ag 2.30in amárach dé hAoine 12 Samhain le Gaillimh a ghlanadh suas! Cláraigh anseo.

 

Agóid Chostas an Choláiste dé Céadaoin 24 Samhain

Bígí linn ag 2in dé Céadaoin 24 Samhain le haghaidh agóid na Gaillimhe faoi chostas an oideachais. Má tá tú tinn tuirseach de tháillí airde, costas maireachtála atá ag dul in airde, costas ar lóistín agus easpa infheistíochta san ardoideachas, bígí linn le hiarradh ar ghníomh chun deireadh a chur leis an ngéarchéim.

  • TÁILLÍ: Is ag Poblacht na hÉireann atá na táillí is airde mac léinn san Aontas Eorpach. Íocann mic léinn ardoideachais i dTuaisceart Éireann níos mó fós, ar an meán
  • TITHÍOCHT: Cíosanna os cionn €1,000 in aghaidh an tseomra/na míosa. Lóistín do mhic léinn atá ‘athainmnithe’ don saibhir. Iomaíocht á méadú idir gairmithe óga le haghaidh leapacha ganna.
  • INFHEISTÍOCHT: Dá mbeadh spéis ag an Rialtas san ardoideachas, dhéanfaidís infheistíocht i dtaighde, i dteagasc agus i dtaithí an mhic léinn. An t-eispéireas a bhí ag mic léinn in Éirinn le blianta beaga anuas ná faillí agus neamhshuim a dhéanamh.

Feargach fós? Cuir do ghuth in iúl Dé Céadaoin, an 24 Samhain. Tuilleadh eolais anseo.
