On 18th February CUSU circulated an open letter relating to Coventry University's no detriment policy and tuition fee refunds to students after substantial feedback from the students on these matters. We invited students who agreed with our proposed actions to sign the letter in support and now have over 5,000 signatures. We thank all our students who took the time to sign the letter.

We have now made the decision to close the opportunity for students to sign the letter as we feel we have a representative number of students and would like to move on with the next steps. Our president is now contacting the Senior Leadership Team at the University to arrange a meeting with CUSU's Officers to discuss the recommendations raised in the open letter. We are keen to work with the university to gain positive outcomes which will benefit our students and will keep our students informed of these discussions.

What support have the university already implemented?

Recently the university updated it's no detriment policy which has been welcomed by CUSU. Students can now take advantage of extensions on assessments which are not time constrained as well as defer any assessments to next semester should they wish to do so. It is important to stress that the extensions do not cover all types of extensions so please ensure you check whether your assessments are covered. You can find out more information on the no detriment policy HERE.

11:54am on 3 Mar 21 I support this letter, there should be compensation in fee because online courses have less fees amount and I have been charged for face to face learning.
