Victoria Proves Popular for Politicians

Victoria University will be graced with the presence of both New Zealand First Leader Winston Peters and Labour MP Grant Robertson this Wednesday.

Following the recent visits of Prime Minister John Key, both politicians are visiting the university to talk to students.

Peters will speak in Meeting Room 3 of the Student Union Building at Kelburn Campus from 12 – 1pm. All are welcome and questions will be taken.

Robertson, Labour’s Spokesperson for Tertiary Education, is holding a Tertiary Talk in Cotton 118 at Kelburn Campus from 5.30pm. He will be discussing Labour’s views for tertiary education and will address current issues such as enrolment caps and restricted access to student loans.

Peters also visited the university’s Te Herenga Waka Marae last Monday for a Maori Business Hui. These visits follow New Zealand First’s recent calls for the government to ensure that domestic students do not miss out to international fee-paying students in their access to tertiary education.
