Beat News highlights the nationwide walk-out held by third level students across the country.
In part one, we focus on the demonstrations held on campuses in the South East.
Students left their tutorials and lectures at 11.11am on Thursday 13th of October 2022.
They told us why they took part and the struggles they face in the current cost-of-living crisis.
We hear from students who are commuting, students who are paying high prices for sub-standard accommodation and one student who is among the hundreds to defer their college place this year to save money.
