The University of Bradford needs to do better to protect students from the effects of the staff strike.

The students – their customers – demand they address the following points:

  • Financial compensation
    • We are paying large fees, often getting in to debt, and it is unacceptable to miss out on many hours of taught sessions and teaching materials.
    • The University could easily have predicted absences based on the previous strike.
    • The University should have made robust contingency plans.
    • Calculated based on numbers of lectures, tutorials, labs, and clinical sessions lost, each UK student could be entitled to a refund of £1520. And international students pay much more.
  • Protection of exam results
    • Exams must not cover material that has not been taught.
    • Students must be informed about when they will be given missed assessments.
    • Information must be provided on when missed material will be taught.
    • Slides from missed lectures should be made available – with appropriate contextual explanation – immediately.
  • Professional standards guarantee
    • The University should at once reassure students that all qualifications obtained from Bradford will continue to meet Professional standards, and clinical qualifications will not miss any key elements.

    This issue will also be on the agenda for discussion at the UBU Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday 5th March, at 6:00 p.m. in Horton Barn. All students are welcome to come and discuss this, and we hope to have representatives of the University to answer your questions.
