The OIA received a total of 2,175 cases –  

  • 200 students received pay-outs as a result of OIA intervention
  • 59% of Complaints to the OIA were unjustified
  • 14% were considered ineligible
  • 5% were withdrawn
  • Approximately 23% of cases were justified or partly justified
  • Approximately 500 students were successful in their cases to the OIA

Financial compensation awarded by the OIA reached almost £400,000 which if averaged out amongst the 500 successful students comes to £800

The numbers are interesting and show that there has been an increase in the number of cases that have been found justified, or partly justified since 2012, when the figure was nearly as low as 4%
