Compensation for lost teaching

26 November 2020

The Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (OIAHE) deals with complaints from students studying in England and Wales.

It has considered, and partially upheld, a complaint from an international student.

The student was awarded £1,000. This represents compensation for not being able to study one module of a course as a result of disruption caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the institution's failure to put acceptable alternatives in place.
