Students United Against Fees

Your Students' Union President Shamima gives an update on the national Students United Against Fees campaign

I would like to update you on a national campaign for tuition fee compensation that I have been working on with other Executive Officers from several Universities around the UK, and led by LSE. As the UK continues to be in a National Lockdown, it has become increasingly clear that the quality of our educational experience does not live up to those who were able to study in-person. This is why we have joined forces to create the Students United Against Fees campaign (SUAF).

The goal of the campaign is to gain national traction in demonstrating that students are not satisfied with what their universities are offering in these times. We believe that tuition fees must be lowered and refunded. Ultimately education should be free. Many of you may have recently signed this petition that will soon be debated in parliament. Over 550,000 students nationally signed. The next step is joining SUAF - fill in their 1 minute sign up form here so you can receive the latest updates about what is going on with the campaign.

The pressure we are building is working. We must demonstrate a united national front to ensure the Government takes responsibility to refund our fees and support our sector. You can find out more about the campaign and get involved by visiting the campaign website here, or following the campaign on social media via Instagram and Twitter

I will continue to ensure the voice of Queen Mary students is heard at a national level. We must all act together, and this campaign should help to empower students with actions on what you as an individual, and we as students, can do to support the cause. There is an opportunity here to make a real difference for the lives of our peers and we must act now.

Thank you for your support, I will keep you all updated.


Students' Union President, on behalf of the Executive Officer team
