Value for Money? (December - January 2020) - Led by CSU President
Since fees have risen over consecutive years following the tuition cap rising to £9000 in 2010, students are increasingly concerned about getting ‘Value for Money’ from their degree and time at University. With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and the ‘blended learning approach’ adopted by the university perceptions of ‘value for money’ have undoubtedly changed.
We want to:
Engage with 700 students through two short surveys in December and January
Understand where students think their fees are going and where they would like them to go
Share a breakdown of where student’s fees are going within the current ‘blended learning’ offering at the University of Chester to encourage transparency from the university and collect feedback from students.
We hope that this campaign will:
Provide students with an infographic that is useful for understanding how the fees are spent at the University of Chester
Help us publish and present a report to the University of Chester Value for Money committee with feedback from students.
