Athlone IT Students To Join National Demonstration Over Third Level Funding

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

The President of Athlone IT’s Students’ Union says free education will increase the number of skilled workers and attract more foreign companies.

Kevin Ronan’s comments come as the Union of Students in Ireland has announced it will hold a major demonstration on October 19th.

Hundreds of students from AIT are expected to attend.

The USI is calling for a publicly-funded model which is one of three options put forward by the Cassells report.

Mr Ronan says that option would benefit everyone.
