Three weeks ago, we announced our transformation to Reform UK. At that time we made it clear this was much more than just a name change. The country is facing enormous challenges that require solutions for both the short term and the long term.
We are now starting to feel the first ripples of the Covid crisis, and thousands of you from all over the UK have reached out to highlight the issues impacting you and your local area. From that, it's clear that many of you think it's time to stand up for our nation's students and get them back to a proper education, and we agree.
The university experience has been reduced to (often low-quality) online learning, halls of residence that resemble detention centres, and bleak job prospects upon graduation. We have heard the call from the students themselves, which is why our first campaign—Stop The Student Rip Off— is centred around a pledge to refund 30% of student fees.

Many students have tried to work with their universities to find a solution, but they were met with reduced contact hours, furloughed staff, and more excuses. The Telegraph published a brilliant article ([link removed]) outlining our campaign and the plight of our students on the weekend.

We are calling for all students to do three things:
1. Write or email your vice-chancellor, local MP and your local newspaper, setting out why you are being badly treated, not getting the education you paid for and demanding a 30% discount.
2. Fill out our form at reformparty.uk/students to pledge your support for this campaign. The more information we receive about your experiences, the better.
3. Create a short 30-second video detailing your poor experience at university and why you support the #StopTheStudentRipOff campaign to put on your social media. Encourage others to do the same – the more people, the more pressure.
The students cannot and should not be left to do this alone. Reform UK is here to give a voice to those that are often ignored and right now our young people need our help.
