The University Congregation votes on tuition fees at Oxford

The Sheldonian Theatre was closed for ceremony today as the lecturers and university officials in Oxford got together to discuss the University’s decision on tuition fees under the new government measures. Students, except reporters, were not allowed in to join the discussion so they had to make their voices heard outside the Sheldonian.

The porters were in charge of preventing an occupation

The porters were in charge of preventing an occupation

Porters were careful and asked for everybody's Id's at the gate

Yet the atmosphere was very relaxed

But the porters stood their guard

Flowers and fliers were in store for the lecturers and university officials

A curious tourist had a look at the student's homemade banners

The police were intently reading the fliers too

The protestors really made their point

The result of the meeting remains to be seen...
