University tuition fees claim

If you were affected by the university strikes during February and March 2018, then you may have missed out on valuable teaching time, including lectures and tutorials.
 
University fees are not cheap, ranging from £9,000 to £36,840, and the universities’ failure to provide the services covered by your tuition fees during the strike period mean they may be in breach of contract under the Consumer Rights Act and related legislation.
 
Thousands of students across the country are joining forces to fight for compensation as a result of this breach and are seeking legal advice. For more information please see our FAQs.
 
The cases brought against the universities are not to undermine the striking lecturers, but rather to seek compensation for students for the loss of fees they have paid for and urged universities to seek the earliest resolution to the dispute to ensure that students are not further inconvenienced by the strikes.

Cathy Olphin, a student at Lancaster University who has instructed Leigh Day said: “I am taking this legal action in order to get back the money I have spent via my student loan and not received tuition for. This is not a judgement on the strikes, it is just asking the university to compensate me for the lost teaching time.”
