Last Oxford rebels promise to pay up

January 29, 1999

(Photograph) - All 14 Oxford University students who were withholding tuition fees in protest at the end of free higher education have now all pledged to pay up, the university said this week. The students faced the threat of being sent down. A spokeswoman for Oxford said that a number of student protests, including a national demonstration at Oxford late last week (below) and a student sit-in, have caused "minimal disruption" to the university's business.
