Summary The massive protests of the 1970s are gone, but university life is still a roller-coaster ride and students are more concerned about what they are going to do when they leave. Set against the backdrop of changing university life and student aspirations, this episode revolves around funding, which has become a major issue for both universities and students. Just how does it affect today's staff and students? Final year student Lucy has the student union to run under voluntary student unionism as well as her studies. Lara finds her architecture classes too large for the classrooms. And international student Leo feels the pressure of the high cost of his education for his parents. (From Australia, in English, and Chinese, English subtitles) (Documentary Series) (Part 2)
