We are using our relationships with national bodies and lobbying organisations to publicly advocate their support for No Detriment policies, and we will update SUs about this in our fortnightly organising calls.
Update: The Office for Students and No Detriment: We received positive communication from the Office for Students regarding their recently revised guidance on quality & standards and what that means for No Detriment policies. You can read the letter here. It highlights the need for universities to show sympathy and consideration regarding the pressures on students as well as the need to consider the Equality Act 2010 in assessment and marking processes. If you have secured any form of No Detriment policy, make sure to fill in this form to ensure your institution's approach is added to the map and help us keep the pressure up around the country!
During the pandemic, students have been forced to transition to remote learning, they've been unable to access facilities, labs and studios required to complete their courses, managed their online studies with bad internet access, and in lots of cases been restricted by digital poverty. Students have managed part-time work, heightened caring responsibilities, and even stepped in to work on NHS frontlines. Students have faced so many hurdles trying to access their education.
Students deserve academic justice with No Detriment policies available at every institution.
Use the map below to find out if your institution has committed to a No Detriment policy for students, and encourage other institutions to do so too.
If your institution does have a No Detriment policy but you don't see it on the Map, please complete the form below and it will be added.
