ARU recently held a student Q&A session. A vast majority of questions focused on the lack of a No Detriment Policy, all of which the university higher ups shot down as impossible and unnecessary to implent.

Multiple scientific courses are currently unable to utilise their universities labs to acquire employable skills, as well as final year students unable to use the labs for their dissertation projects. One senior member of staff said they had never been asked about their lab skills in an interview???? Yet I had an interview for a scientist role just the other day and this was the first question they asked.

Universities are ignoring student concerns and perpetuating the same recycled excuses when challenged. Students in their final year this year are at a serious disadvantage and Universities like ARU are doing nothing to rectify this.

My daughter is going into the third year of her teaching degree in September and has had to watch all of her lectures online. She is not able to do her placements which is a massive part of her degree. Yet there is no reduction in their tuition fees which is currently £9,250 per year..

It is quite clear that students are facing unprecedented circumstances in the current academic year and this must be affecting learning and the quality of the student experience. Universities must take this into account.

Students are facing an extremely difficult time during this pandemic, the stresses they are under are incredible and they need all the help they can get, and this would be a fair and just way of helping them attain the grades they deserve.

My final year of my degree has been completely disrupted and it is unacceptable to expect students to perform at the same standard as normal years during this time.

Loss of access to essential laboratory facilities, for students who can't finish degrees without them

My daughter is in the final year of her university degree and the level of teaching contact has drastically diminished even with remote learning. This is detracting from the quality of education provided.
