The University of Manchester AMBS Postgraduate Strike Petition

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


 Join 70,000+ UK University students who are signing strike petitions to demand what we deserve.

We are calling upon all postgraduate students of Alliance Manchester Business School to sign a petition in support of fair and equal treatment of students and lecturers by the University of Manchester. We stand united with AMBS postgraduate students and lecturers who are being personally impacted by the strike action from the 22nd of February to the 16th of March 2018. Student representatives across AMBS have created this petition to represents every student and every course in the AMBS postgraduate programme.

What do we want the University to do? What are our demands?

We demand that the University of Manchester finds an agreement to end the strike and that every AMBS postgraduate student is compensated £250 for every lecture(s) that is cancelled.

How the strike directly affects us:

  • We are losing out on lectures and valuable teaching hours, and for most courses, these lectures WILL NOT be rescheduled at a later date
  • Students on most courses are losing out on ALL lecture material, which means that we are not receiving what was promised by the University
  • Our examinations, dissertations, and successful graduation will undoubtedly be impacted
  • Our future careers also hang in the balance, with this strike and its action having an impact on our job prospects

What does this mean for us financially?

International students within AMBS, for instance, could potentially lose up to £300 (of paid tuition fees) per cancelled lecture. If the strike continues for the intended 14 affected days, then International students could lose up to £4,000 (of paid tuition fees) each.

We urge all AMBS Postgraduate programmes to sign this petition:

MSc Accounting; MSc Accounting and Finance; MSc Business Analysis and Strategic Management; MSc Business Analytics: Operational Research and Risk Analysis; MSc Business Psychology; MSc Finance; MSc Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations; MSc Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship; MSc International Business and Management (Management); MSc International Human Resource Management and Comparative Industrial Relations; MSc Management; MSc Marketing; MSc Operations, Project and Supply Chain Management; MSc Organisational Psychology; MSc Quantitative Finance

This strike could potentially extend into the summer, which would impact the examination and dissertation period, which in effect disrupts the ENTIRE academic schedule.

Sign the petition now. Hold the University of Manchester accountable for YOUR future.
