UCU Industrial Action - information and guidance for students

University of Leeds

Salary reductions arising from participation in last term’s strikes totalled just over £1 million.   

The University and Leeds University Union (LUU) have agreed that this money should be allocated as follows:

  • £550,000 to a range of student hardship funds;
  • £250,000 to Sanctuary Scholarships, both to increase the number of scholarships available and to help integrate scholars into the University and to provide them with co-curricular opportunities;
  • £250,000 to support widening participation, both to ensure that these students have access to co-curricular opportunities and to address factors which support course continuation and student community building.

The proposals to support course continuation and student community building are being drawn up by LUU.
