Contrary to what you've read, King's College London has NOT decided on any refunds
Share This Article:
Articles published by The Times and The Tab claim that King's had confirmed that it would be compensating students for missed teaching hours. The Times went on to imply that a student had been offered a refund, this is not the case. The Time's article referred to an email sent to students by KCL's senior management in which Professor Nicola Phillips said that salary savings "will be ring-fenced as a fund which we can use to offset the impact of the strike on our students." the email adds that the university will "develop a mechanism for considering cases for any further compensation that may be warranted in light of cancelled classes." However, compensation also includes non-monetary pay such as coursework extensions. Some universities are campaigning for lost strike wages to be put into university mental health services or hardship funds thereby offsetting some of the impact and anxieties caused by the strikes.
