Don't worry if you missed out today as due to Nathan's speed we've hidden Ben again, the clue being:

Today we managed once again to cause havoc in the URN studios with an array of guests being put to the test to discover whether they are up to the challenges ahead in their new positions.
After a crazy show yesterday with Will & Danny, high expectations came with today’s guests: George Wright (SU Democracy & Communications Officer), Oli Margolis (SU Finance Officer), Dave Jackson (Editor-in-Chief of Impact).

Today, on another packed episode of The Pulse, we reported on the study by the University of Leicester suggesting that even if fees do increase, many students won't be discouraged from going to Uni.
The study showed that the high demand for university places is going to continue, with 90% of potential applicants willing to pay fees of around £10,000.
In the studio we agreed that it was encouraging to see so many people continue to want to study, but it is also a worry that shows while red brick uni's would not lose applications, former polytechnics and newer universities would notice a big difference and could cause Uni's to be seen as elitist
Yesterday Will Vickers spoke to us about how the Uni would react to fee increases and cuts in Uni spending:
Now it wasn't all worrying news on The Pulse today - we also spoke to Ollie Margolis, the Finance and Services Manager on the SU Exec and George Wright, the Democracy and Communications Officer and they were both very pleased with how Week One had been going so far! Ollie followed in Will's footsteps as he reassured us that even if university cuts affect the SU, the Student Run Services, such as NUTs, Impact and of course URN, will not be largely affected as funding would be brought in from other sources...phew!
