Student Exec Success in Lobby for University Safety Net

Higher Education

Your student exec officers have been working hard behind the scenes to secure what many of you have been asking for, clarification on a 'no detriment policy', AKA a 'safety net' around classifications for Graduation and finalists, and we're pleased to announce that their hard work has paid off.

All University of Leeds students should have received an email yesterday (30 April) outlining the policy and what it means for students, you can also watch a video message from Professor Tom Ward, Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Student Education at the University, via the link in the header.

Your Welfare Officer Amy Wells, said:

"We have worked hard to get the University to provide more clarity on the no detriment, safety net and 'Special Discretion' approaches and we're so pleased that we can now say that as long as you pass your modules, your classification will not fall below the level of achievement you have already demonstrated by the end of Semester One 2019/20 and your mark can only go up. They have streamlined the mitigating circumstances process for those who are dealing with additional difficulties right now. More information can be found here"

If you have any questions about the University's new no detriment policy, you can get in touch with the LUU Help and Support Team here.
