Additional Comments: I am delighted to sign this pledge and to see the great work being done by USI to mobilise student voters. I’m a former Students’ Union officer and served as Site President of the Coleraine Campus of the University of Ulster in 96/97. 

Education is a right and I fully support publicly funded education to third level. Anything else serves to disadvantage those in our society who already face so many barriers. I absolutely oppose a loan scheme and I consider that we only have to look to the US to see the damage that has been done to generations of Americans who are saddled with a lifetime of debt.

Students today are also burdened with a housing crisis, which means that many of them don’t enjoy the full student experience, many are unable to avail of the course of their choice or even to complete a chosen course of education. Student accommodation must be provided that is fit for purpose, that is affordable and that will allow all students to complete their studies.

I fully support the end to Direct Provision in Ireland and commit to full integration of those seeking asylum in our area. I have been an active campaigner in this area.

And I fully support the climate measure outlined in the USI manifesto, which echo those of our own climate manifesto for local government – https://www.socialdemocrats.ie/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Cleaner-Greener-Communities-Final-For-Web.pdf

I look forward to meeting with Students’ Union reps once elected to learn how I can best represent the interests and needs of students in my area.
