The students of University of Huddersfield urge the University to give us some sort of compensation for the 14 days of strike action between Thursday 20th February and Friday 13th March. 

We pay £9250.00 per year for our University studies which equates to roughly £61.67 per day (30 weeks of term, 150 days of teaching / contact time). This means we are paying £863.33 for 14 days of study which we won't receive.

Money aside, this strike comes in some students final semester before graduating, which has a detrimental impact on our assignments, exams, projects and dissertations. While tutors are on strike, they cannot reply to emails or be available for one to one tuition. 

Students affected need to be allowed deadline extensions at the very least to make up for lost tuition time in such a crucial period.

UPDATE: WE HAVE GOT NOTHING AGAINST THE REASON WHY THE STRIKE IS HAPPENING. IN FACT, WE UNDERSTAND WHY LECTURERS ARE ON STRIKE AND HENCE ENCOURAGE THEM TO ENSURE THEY GET THEIR RIGHTS. HOWEVER, THIS DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT WE ARE PAYING FOR LECTURES THAT ARE NOT HAPPENING. WE HAVE ASSIGNMENTS DUE AND HAVE VERY LITTLE HELP. 

IN THE BELOW LINK, THE STAFF ON STRIKE ALSO URGE US TO DEMAND OUR MONEY BACK HENCE THERE SHOULD BE NO ISSUES WITH THIS PETITION.
