Freedom of information requests reveals scale of university payments to students

The University of Oxford has paid out more than £55,000 in compensation to students and former students in the last five years, figures obtained by Research Professional News reveal.

The institution settled seven compensation cases since 2015 for a total of £57,252, the university told us in response to a freedom of information request, adding that the complaints were in “respect of allegations of inadequate supervision, inadequate exam adjustments for disabilities, lost teaching through a strike and administrative failings/delays”.
