Industrial action: financial support for affected students

The University has decided that students affected by the industrial action will be able to claim for out-of-pocket expenditure incurred as a result of the strike.

We are aware that some students may be affected by the industrial action taking place when University staff strike in protest about the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) pension and the national pay award.

Students affected by the industrial action will be able to claim for out-of-pocket expenditure incurred as a result of the strike.

This will include, but is not limited to, travel and subsistence costs - for example bus and rail fares, sandwiches and drinks purchased on days when teaching or research activity was cancelled due to industrial action.

For full details of financial support available, please refer to the terms and conditions.

If you have read the terms and conditions and believe that you would be eligible for a payment, please complete the short online claim form. You will be asked to upload images of receipts to provide evidence of the expenditure.

A member of staff will assess your claim and contact you via email to inform you whether your claim has been successful.

If your claim is successful, we will ask you to submit your bank details (or check that your current details are valid). You will need respond to the instructions in the email so payment can be made swiftly.
