Leeds Uni to receive a partial refund of tuition fees due to disruption from strikes

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

As thousands of students have been affected by the strike caused by pension negotiations in the UCU, we believe it is fair to refund some of the student fees being paid to the universities as we are not getting the treatment or education we are paying for. 

4 weeks of teaching has been affected, out of the 22 teaching weeks of the year. Paying £9,000 per year for 22 weeks of teaching results in 9,000/22 x 4 = £1,636. Therefore, we expect a level of compensation close to this. 

This is an extortionate amount of wasted money. Going to university, we expect a university level education and a graduate level knowledge at the end of it. Missing out on such a chunk of teaching will lead to being at a disadvantage compared to those unaffected.

Of course there is sympathy given to the reason for the lecturers strike and we are encouraging emails to be sent to the vice chancellor to revise their pension plans, however the consequent effects on the students needs to be compensated for. 

Please sign this petition if you believe some compensation should be given to those missing out on crucial teaching time, leading to potentially poorer exam results and a chunk of missing knowledge.
