08/04/20 - No Detriment Policy, Private Accommodation support and Tuition Fees

As Easter approaches, and the prospect of a 4 day weekend filled with baking, painting, reading and walking fills us with excitement and dread in equal measure, your Officer Team are still working hard to represent you and support you, and things are still moving forwards. We've got a few updates for you on accommodation, tuition fees and the No-Detriment policy. Please stay safe and stay home this Easter, and we hope you find time to rest and connect with loved ones

No Detriment Policy Statement

We have released another statement regarding the recent update from the University relating to the 'No Detriment Policy'. View this online here. 

Living in Private Rented Accommodation?

We are very aware that many of you living in the private sector may have significant concerns about your finances with so much uncertainty right now. Many of you will have already vacated your privately rented housing and headed back home. We want to call on landlords to be lenient and flexible during this time. Please view our latest update around private housing and take advantage of our template letter for landlords which we have prepared for you.

Tuition Fees 

These are unprecedented times that have and are having huge consequences on your personal wellbeing and your learning. With two rounds of industrial action and a pandemic that has resulted in all teaching to move online, uncertainty around assessments, graduations, your very future, we fully understand why you may be asking yourself: “Why am I paying for this?”.

Activities Officer Francesco has put together a blog giving you a little insight into the work going on behind the scenes with regards to tuition fees, so take a look and keep connected as things progress.
