Open Letter to Michelle Donelan, Minister of State for Universities, 2021

Dear Minister,


It has been eight months since we wrote to you in an open letter, and almost a year (to the first UK case of the novel coronavirus) since an online university education was collectively implemented. We are regretful that we are going through these processes again, less than a calendar year later, together with Liberate the University in their open letter, to express our disappoint in the government’s handling of the pandemic in relation to higher education, especially for studio-based learners. We no longer seek clarification on the statements you made in relation to tuition fee refunds which you have consistently repeated, ignoring pleas of SU officers, grassroots campaigns, and even other MPs, that "if [students] feel that their quality of education isn't there, that the quantity isn't there, they can go through the process of first of all complaining to their university and if that's not successful then go to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator [for Higher Education]." After almost a year of going through these processes, we are appalled that the complaints procedure is consistently pushed to students and at the hands-off manner in which the government has treated universities and their students.


Pause or Pay UK is a UK-wide cross-university action group that arose due to lack of provisions for studio-based learners. Nine months later, we are still in that very same situation in which Pause or Pay was founded. Our members are students from Arts University Bournemouth, Bath School of Art & Design, Birmingham City University, Bradford School of Art, City & Guilds of London Art School, Coventry University, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Edinburgh College of Art, Falmouth University, Glasgow School of Art, Goldsmiths University of London, Gray’s School of Art, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Heriot-Watt University, Kingston School of Art, Leeds Arts University, Liverpool Hope University, Liverpool John Moores University, London Metropolitan University, Manchester School of Art, Teesside University MIMA School of Art & Design, Newcastle University, Northumbria University, Norwich University of the Arts, Nottingham Trent University, Ravensbourne University London, Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance, Royal College of Art, UCL Slade School of Fine Art, University of the Arts London (Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion, Wimbledon College of Arts), University of Brighton, University for the Creative Arts, University of Essex, University of Leeds, University of Sheffield and the University of the West of England Bristol.  We are not only studio-based learners, but also creatives whose learning is dependent on the communication and space that has been taken away from us. We exist in relation with the art world – we are a community of creatives, artists and makers, unlike the hierarchical teacher-student structures found in HEIs.


Quality, as emphasised by the OIA in complaints processes, is a nebulous concept, constructed by the system, which is itself broken. To us, quality seems to be a list of elements, lightly monitored by the OfS, for universities to fulfil on their own terms. This system does not work in fulfilment of delivering higher education, especially studio-based education. Creative courses, which aim to shape the next generation of artists, makers and creatives, cannot be assessed for “quality” successfully with a predefined rubric. In the timeframe of a year, universities are still showing an inability to construct an effective and appropriate plan which provides for their students in a pandemic.


When going through the formal complaints procedure, student experience and learning are reduced to legal points in course handbooks, the minutiae of which are discussed to death in legal-style review panels without any legal support for the students involved. The complaints process also takes an inordinate amount of time to process. 937 students at the RCA who submitted their formal group complaint in May 2020 are still remaining in the internal complaints procedure for nine months and counting. We condemn the fact that students are now made to gather evidence on their course delivery and spend time looking into guidance from bodies such as the OfS and OIAHE, all of which affect our practice and relationship with our universities. None of us want to be in a position where we are in opposition to our institutions, but this government has driven a wedge between universities and their students by refusing to take responsibility for neglect of a public good – education.


There is a dereliction of responsibility by all involved in the experience of students and staff during the pandemic – vice chancellors, senior management teams, the OIAHE, the OfS, UUK and other associated bodies. Responsibility is being bounced between these institutions and governmental/public bodies: the stance of the government is that universities are responsible for their own running, the situation on the ground at the universities is that student complaints are escalated to the OIAHE without meaningful resolution. The OIAHE states universities should prioritise transparency and upholding teaching standards but does not enforce these. The OfS seems out of touch with students when advising providers to reconsider no detriment policies whilst UUK seem reticent to use their position as a collective of VCs to request sector-wide government assistance. Students are caught between numerous advice and guidance, and have no proper channels where their concerns are considered in a meaningful way which can lead to a meaningful impact on their experience as a student. 


It comes as no surprise that the issues we wrote to you about last year, both those that we were experiencing first hand and those we identified and preempted, have persisted or amplified in this academic year. 


The protected category of disabled students, recognised by the Equality Act 2010, has been completely ignored, although they will face insuperable difficulties if forced to try and cope unsupervised and without specialised equipment adapted to the particular individual’s needs. Disabled students are having to manage their education and lifestyle in a potentially isolating environment with no support. Online education faces threats in itself. For example, some students are having to reduce their screen control to prevent seizures, all whilst expecting to meet deadlines and perform to the same level as their peers. Additionally, many have not had their support plans adjusted within the context of the pandemic. 


Students are expected to achieve the same standards and meet the same learning criteria that was set pre-pandemic, and for those working with specialist equipment in unspecialised environments, this places them at significant risk. The lack of understanding towards resources and learning space required for certain subjects has been made evident. For example, if a photography student requires access to a dark room, they could be using dangerous chemicals in a space unfit for the purpose of developing photos. And this is even if they have the financial privilege and resources to do this. This is no romanticisation of the struggling artist trope, this is a serious health & safety issue which goes against all H&S standards followed in university buildings. Documentation of these home studios has in fact been a popular activity for us studio-based learners throughout these months, with examples you can find here and here. Since students’ practises are not taking place within university facilities, they are also without the supervision and expertise of the technicians.


Many students can not afford computers with the processing power required for the expensive specialist software they are required to use for their work. This digital equipment and software would ordinarily be made available at their institution. New techniques and software, such as 3-D modelling and animation, would also have to be taught to students in order to translate their physical work to be suitable for online degree shows, which amount to nothing more than an online catalogue of a series of images. Even with fully virtual teaching, studio and workshop facilities are still required for students to produce work to be photographed and displayed in virtual degree shows.


There is a stark difference between physical and virtual iterations of degree shows and other showcases of work or practice. Physical degree shows are an important aspect for the delivery of studio-based undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes. Showcases provide an exhibition of physical pieces of work, normally for a week for degree shows, during which students have unrivalled opportunity to meet experts, curators and collectors from all over the world, with extensive press coverage. These shows have been the springboard from which the careers of many illustrious artists and designers have been launched. Virtual shows cannot adequately emulate a viewer’s physical experience of the piece of work shown. This late into the pandemic, curators have also admitted to clicking out of virtual shows after only viewing a few pieces. Everyone in this ecosystem – students, tutors, curators, collectors, and more – is so tired of pretending we can fully carry out the system we had before in the online sphere.


As is evident, courses which have been designed to be studio-based are almost impossible to teach online, as they require specialist studios and spaces with technical support. Academic and teaching staff are overwhelmed and stretched to constantly rewrite their syllabi to accommodate for constantly changing university guidelines, which is a result of constantly changing government guidelines. Their poor working conditions mean poor learning conditions for students.


In these troubled and uncertain times, we have been abandoned by the very institutions which we expect to protect our interests and well-being, but which have instead acted to promote their own self-interest at our expense. International students, who are a principal source of university cash-flow, have been tossed aside in discussions surrounding mitigations during the pandemic. Many have been constantly uprooted from their environment with changes in government guidance, border closures, and university building closures. The instability of the situation has taken a great toll on international student mental health, only compounded by the fact that their practice has to be packed up and moved every few weeks. Some students were not even able to retrieve materials from university buildings as they closed at short notice. The acute pain of being separated from one’s work and practice cannot be put into words, and cannot be conveyed to yourself to fully understand. This is notwithstanding the isolation felt by many from the community of creatives at university due to time zone differences. There is also a financial burden placed on international students to fulfil their degrees as per normal, with costs of materials mostly being more expensive in their home countries as they are not subsidised by their universities. 


Our position can be quite simply put – so simply put, in fact, that our demands are evident in our name. We want the government to play a role in financially aiding the higher education sector to reach an ideal solution for the future of education in the UK – we want a government bailout of the Higher Education sector, a sector so famous in the UK and even around the world, the way the government has bailed out cultural institutions. Through this, we want the government to work together with our universities to:

  • Support and safeguard international students with regards to visas, financial aid in lieu of work hour restrictions, and No Recourse to Public Funds. Many studio-based learners are international students and many institutions bill themselves as international.

  • Guarantee a physical degree show for graduates – This includes provisions for 2-3 months of full access to workshops and studios or financial support to access external facilities. 


And allow students to either:



  • Deferral Regulations to not disregard requests made based on impacts of the pandemic - It is a physical impossibility and dangerous to suggest a continuation of artistic activities outside the studio and the safety of a workshop. 




  • Refund previous fees and discount upcoming fees to reflect the loss of teaching, studios, access to facilities, and industry networking opportunities – Which has been ongoing since the start of the pandemic restrictions. This refund should not affect contractual terms, pay rate, or workload of staff.


The alternative of an online programme to complete the studio-based course cannot be imposed on students without their agreement, since it amounts to a different performance to that originally promised. We regard it to be fair for studio-based higher education students, who wish to continue or have gone through online teaching, to have a reduction of the tuition fee payable commensurate with the amount of studio and workshop hours lost. If full fees have already been paid, the student should be refunded the relevant amount they have already paid. Insofar as the student has taken out a student loan, we would ask the Government to reimburse them the amount of the loan applicable, as stated above. 


We highly doubt our position is unreasonable in these times – we simply ask for reasonable provisions to be made for studio-based learners who have put their faith in their institutions. As studio-based learners, creatives, artists, and makers, we typically go on to hold some of the most precarious jobs, yet the creative industry is persistently viewed as a lucrative export and attractive characteristic sitting at the heart of UK identity. Unless swift, decisive and collective action is taken, current students and graduates will slip through the cracks, thus weakening an already unstable career trajectory. Failing to address the disintegrating marketised structure of the education sector and the fee crisis within HEIs not only threatens the integrity of arts education, but risks the erosion of the UK’s cultural backbone.

Pause or Pay is a UK-wide student-led cross-university action group that emerged as a response to disruption of studio-based learning by COVID-19. To date, we have campaigned to MPs, initiated complaints procedures at various institutions and supported tuition fee strikes. Questions? Interested in helping out?
