Waive University of Kent graduation fees for the 2017/18 academic year

In order to graduate, students at the University of Kent incur the following costs; £40 to graduate, regardless of whether we attend the graduation ceremony and £40 to rent gowns, take phots etc. 

This year, final year undergraduate and postgraduate students missed out on several weeks of teaching due to strike action. As a consequence, we owe money for a service we never received. This amount totals over 1.2k in tuition fees, and is much higher for international students. Yet, we are still required to pay a further £80 in order to graduate, and have not been compensated for our financial and educational losses. We propose that the graduation fees for the 2017/18 academic year be waived, and be paid by the University of Kent instead. It is completely unfair that students are still obligated to pay a total of £80 in most cases, when we have not received the other core services we have paid for. The sum of £80 is an incredible amount of money for some students. Therefore, all final year undergraduate and postgraduate students, graduating this year, should be exempt from paying fees. Waiving this years fees would be a much appreciated gesture.
