Compensation is offered to the students who were negatively impacted as a result of UCU industrial action and 2020 finalists are compensated for a loss in teaching time and impact on their University experience through the fees being waived for robe hire.
Discussions with the VC
Rachel, RUSU President, has been in conversations with the VC to discuss options going forward.
Evidence of what other universities are doing to compensate their students has been collated.
In May 2020, two Change It! campaign ideas passed for RUSU to lobby the university for free graduation gown hire in 2020 and for compensation to all students for UCU strike action.
