The best ideas will receive up to £10,000 to fund events or other projects proposed by student unions across the country.
Commenting, our Parliamentary Candidate, Darren Fower said:
“Its a great idea to get the NUS involved, as students are more likely to listen to them then a bunch on politicians.
“Not forgetting this year will be the first time many students get to vote in a general election and like going to University, voting it’s a vital rite of passage that I believe everyone should be proud to be part of.
“You may already be registered at your parents’ address, but if you want to vote in the constituency where you study, you will have to register there.
“It only takes a few minutes with the new online system and remember to have your say, you have to register!”
There will also be funding to boost campaigns to help ensure every student has the information they need to register.
Investments will also be made across the Further Education sector to encourage young people in schools and further education colleges to get involved in the campaign.
