This is a campaign led by your Part-Time Students' Rep, Salma Ghazal.

context. This inequality extends far beyond just funding, permeating every facet of the university experience.
It is crucial to recognize that these students should not be perceived as more privileged; many opt for these
programs due to

These circumstances compound the stress of funding, potentially obstructing numerous deserving individuals from
completing their studies, realizing their aspirations, or pursuing their dreams. As a result, this campaign
seeks to raise awareness about this inequity and advocate for increased funding opportunities for these students.
We want to collect the stories of part-time and distance learning students to share with the wider Strathclyde
community. If you'd like to be part of this, to share your story, or to support the campaign in another way,
Please support the campaign by filling out the survey and telling us
your thoughts or email your student rep directly!
We need part-time or distance learning students who are willing to help with the campaign. Most of the activities
will take place between the 8th
and 15th January 2024. You
can also help with specific activities only, if you prefer.
