University Fees

We were instructed by a home student studying for a degree in Graphic Design with the University of the Arts, London (“the University”). At the end of his second year of study he, like many students, had the chance of taking an international period of study which was to be credited towards his final grade. Following his placement year studying in Hong Kong however, our client returned to the University to be informed that, due to the University’s own error, the credits obtained from his placement year would not count towards his overall degree classification. As a result, he would have to retake the second year of his degree rather than progress onto his final year, bear all the costs of the same and bear the costs of his final year at the University as well as losing out on a year’s salary that he could have received had he continued his study when he originally intended. On behalf of our client, we prepared a letter to the University outlining the clear breach of contract and/or negligence that had occurred between our client and the University, outlined the merits of our clients matter, collated and submitted evidence alongside the letter proving our points and then requesting the University compensate our client for his losses. Following liaison between the University and ourselves, our client was reinstated into his final year, received over £38,000 in compensation from the University and had his retaken second year and final year fees waived.
