Erm, yeeeeaah. Bit of an awkward one 😦 We want to be happy for Aaron Porter – as we are all about students making the most out of their university experience, but this story just leaves a bitter after-taste.
Late last night, the Independent [online] reported that former NUS president,
Aaron Porter, has successfully established himself as a higher education consultant – charging £125 p/hr for his time! Charlie Cooper, for The Independent, writes:
“Porter, who stood down as NUS president in June after one term in office, has advertised a rate of £8,500 for a two-week consultancy course. Most top universities will charge £9,000 per year for tuition from 2012.”
We’ve had a guess at what most of you are probably thinking but we’d actually like to hear it from you. Leave comments!
