Students get complaining after tuition fee rise

Universities are more likely to get complaints now tuition fees are higher.

A report by the Office of the Independent Adjudicator says appeals jumped by 20% in the first year of the new fees in England and Wales.One upheld complaint was from a PhD student who said their university examiners did not understand his subject.

Complaints against universities are still incredibly rare, and we think we have it pretty good in Manchester.

Not included in these complaints were [Censored] University that ran a course on Jedi mind tricks, [Censored] University that gave students food with drawing pins in, or indeed [Censored] University which is famously downwind of a sewage treatment plant.*

* All allegedly (according to online reviews) and none, thankfully, in the UK!
