Students whose studies will be hit by what unions claim will be “the most extensive strike action ever seen” on UK campuses are planning to demand compensation from their universities for disruption to their degrees.

Academics and lecturers in 61 universities across the country will strike over 14 days starting later this month in protest over proposed changes to their pensions which they claim will leave a typical lecturer almost £10,000 worse off each year in retirement – or around £200,000 in total.

The industrial action, which kicks off on February 22, will mean cancelled lectures, tutorials and seminars, which could have a significant impact on students who pay £9,000 annual tuition fees and build up debts of up to £50,000 after going to university.
