Your Students' Guild is joining the #EaseTheFees tuition fee compensation campaign!
Following our announcement that Guild Council had voted in favour of your Students’ Guild campaigning for tuition fee compensation earlier in term 2, we’re delighted to be joining the #EaseTheFees campaign!
The #EaseTheFees campaign was launched by the Falmouth and Exeter Students’ Union in response to the dissatisfaction many students are feeling with the higher education provision throughout the coronavirus pandemic. We know that this is a feeling shared by many at Exeter, regardless of level of study or campus.
Students have been impacted through contact hours and in-person teaching being reduced, access to facilities being difficult, research and projects being affected, a lack of extra-curricular activities and events (such as graduations) and so much more. We recognise that this is not for the lack of hard work from the University, where staff have been working incredibly hard and passionately in what is also a challenging time for them.
Penny Dinh, VP Education, said:
“I’m absolutely delighted we’re joining the #EaseTheFees campaign, which has gained some great momentum already! Like huge numbers of students around the country, Exeter students have not had the educational experience they signed up for, and I hope the efforts of this campaign can ease that dissatisfaction.”
- We’ll be releasing some action points soon on how we’ll be going forward with the campaign. We’ll update you regularly on our social media (@ExeterGuild & @ExeEducation), so make sure you give us a follow!
- Get in touch with Penny, your VP Education, to get involved with the campaign.
- Follow the campaign Instagram page, where you can submit your own experiences to be shared!
- Sign up to the online protest this Friday – more details here.
