University of Glasgow Debt Policy

The Competition and Markets Authority have today announced that the University of  Glasgow has given them an undertaking to change the terms of their debt policy. The CMA had believed that the current wording of the policy  could unfairly prevent students from re-enrolling or graduating if they owed non-tuition fee debts, such as unpaid accommodation or library fees.

Class rep training signup open!

Class Reps are essential to both the University and the SRC. They allow students to air their views to the academics that run their department on issues like course content, teaching and resources. They are the first point of contact for students who have a problem, or suggestion, about a class as a whole. If you want to sign up for the class rep training, please visit the Class Rep Training signup on the Student Voice website (login with your GUID account). We have lots of sessions available between the 17th October and the 8th November.

University debt policy “unlawful” and “unfair”

Our Vice President for Education Kate Powell spoke to Herald Scotland recently about the University’s current debt policy. At present the University can prevent students from re-registering for the next academic year if they have a debt of over £25, regardless of what the debt is owed for. University College London implemented a similar policy last year and were forced to amend this policy by the Competition & Markets Authority as they asserted that it was unlawful for any University to impose academic sanctions for a non-academic debt. (Non-academic debt generally means anything other than tuition fees or field trip expenses.)
