Students are prepared to take Ruskin College court over thedifficulties many faced in trying to obtain their degree results. At the time, the UCU said in a press release: “UCU iscalling for the immediate reinstatement of Dr Lee Humber and for the boguscharges against Lee to be dropped.” The latest in a series of controversies facing the college, studentsfrom almost every course suffered months of uncertainty after completing theirfinal exams. Speaking to the Oxford Mail, 22-year-old Aaron Miles saidthe college told BA Social and Political Studies students that their resultswould be delayed for “a small amount of time” in July. A rally was organised in April following the suspension ofDr Lee Humber, the UCU’s representative at Ruskin College. A controversial year, Ruskin College faced accusations of“victimisation” following several disciplinary and redundancy threats directedat members of the University and College Union (UCU) earlier this year. A statement from Ruskin College said a “small number ofstudents” final results had been delayed after the resignation of the externalexaminers appointed by the Open University. “New examiners have now beenappointed and final results will be available shortly.” “As it turns out, the results in question have never arrivedand we fear they never will. This is the same for most of the students who leftin 2019.” “We have not been made aware of any students whose places onmasters courses have been affected by delays to marks; in this circumstance wewould expect to be contacted by the relevant institution whereby this mattercould easily be resolved.” Last month, the entire social work department of the collegealso resigned after four tutors were made redundant. “Our students are our primary concern and we have been inregular contact with them over the summer. We will continue to support themmoving forward.”
