James Richards made this Freedom of Information request to University of Worcester

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Worcester,
I am presently researching Equality in the UK and although I accept you may not know the amount of students, I am writing to enquire as to whether you are aware of any students in the last ten years that have approached Worcestershire County Council and the Office of Independent Adjudicators for Higher Education with complaints that they felt that the University of Worcester had failed to resolve.

Yours faithfully,

J Richards and Associates

Helen Johnstone, University of Worcester
