The majority of students to participate in the largest show of opposition to coalition’s cuts will come from London-based universities (5,000 marchers are expected to show up). Nearly 3,200 students from universities in the south-east will join the march, with almost 4,500 students from the West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside.
Many students are expected to come from Sheffield, where Nick Clegg has been criticized for going back on a promise not to increase fees.
Aaron Porter, the NUS president, said: "This is the largest student protest in the UK for at least a decade … which goes to show the huge extent of discontent with this government's short-sighted plans, which will effectively privatize large parts of higher education and remove support for many college and adult education learners."
The Metropolitan police is likely to face 15,000 protesters. It discusses the issue with the NUS and other groups planning to march along the Embankment. At the same time nine university vice-chancellors warned the government in a letter to the Guardian that it is a "profound error" to withdraw public funds from undergraduate teaching. They believe that the fear of debt will discourage the poorest from the higher education, although students will not be required to pay fees upfront.
