Sussex University to pay compensation to suspended student protesters

Posted On 21 Jan 2015 at 6:46 pm

Sussex University is to apologise and pay compensation to four students it suspended over a protest, the Guardian reports today.

The four protesters were suspended in December 2013 after a protest about the privatisation of university studies.

Since then, the university has spent £55,000 on legal fees and now the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education has recommended it apologise and pay each between £2,000 and £2,500 in compensation.
