We would like to provide you with some further information on the industrial action which took place on campus during February and March.

We have drawn up some Frequently Asked Questions which you may find useful, and at the bottom of the page you can find copies of correspondence sent to all students.

From the 16th April and following a ballot of its members, UCU has accepted the latest proposal on ending the dispute, suspended further industrial action and is establishing a Joint Expert Panel with UUK to examine the USS 2017 valuation.

Bath is now concentrating on gathering information in order to identify the precise impact of the strike on all units and programmes, and working with staff and students to try and mitigate any adverse impact. More information on this can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions .

We will continue to keep you informed of this work via email, through academic departments, and through working with the Students’ Union. We appreciate that the current dispute has been causing uncertainty and anxiety for many of our students, and want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to minimise this.
