UCU Industrial action

(Last updated 31 May 2023)

We know that the impact of some staff choosing not to mark assessments is of concern to our students.

Detailed mitigations are in place to support all students, with a particular focus on finalists. Students can be confident that our top priority is to ensure they can continue with their education or plans for the future.

We are doing all we can to support our students through this period and are keeping them updated with the latest information and guidance. Our wellbeing and support services remain open.
