What Happened

In recent years, UK students have seen their university experience disrupted by repeated rounds of staff strikes and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Teaching was either cancelled or moved online; access to campus facilities like libraries, study spaces and labs was restricted. Despite the disruption, universities have not reduced tuition fees or compensated students.

    The claim

    Basis of
    your claim

    There is a contract between every student and their university. The student pays course fees and the university agrees to provide in-person tuition, access to facilities and other services as set out in its contractual documents, prospectuses, and promotional materials.

    Universities breached their contracts with students from 2018 onwards, in response to strikes and then Covid-19. During those years they cancelled in-person classes or moved them online, as well as restricted access to facilities such as libraries.

    Students can claim financial compensation for these breaches of contract. The best way for them to achieve this is as a group, in a collective court claim.

    FAQs

    Is this a scam?

    No, we are pleased to say! These group claims are being organised by teams of well-regarded lawyers with decades of experience successfully running complex court claims. Just have a look at the Legal Team page to see more about the fantastic legal team behind these group claims. The lawyers conducting the claims are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, SRA, the body which regulates all solicitors in England and Wales. You can see Asserson’s SRA registration page here and Harcus Parker’s page here.

    Am I entitled to compensation if my course moved online?

    In our view, yes. There is typically a substantial difference between the price of a traditional university course and an equivalent online course. In our view, under English law, you are entitled to compensation to make up that difference for the period when your course moved online.

    Am I entitled to compensation if some of my classes were cancelled due to strike action?

    In our view, yes. Under English law, if a university promised you a certain number of weeks of teaching and provided a smaller number of weeks, for example due to strike action by lecturers, you are entitled to compensation for the cancelled teaching weeks.

    Do I need to pay anything to join a group claim?

    No. We will not ask you to pay anything out of your pocket at any stage. All our legal fees will be met out of the compensation if your group wins its claim, with your contribution capped at 35% of the compensation.
