Students who doss about, do no work and don’t get a degree are suing universities for allowing them to fail.
Drognar Belvidere (not his real name) spent his entire time at university attending protests, going to festivals and smoking weed. In spite of staying on an extra year and getting additional tuition, he left without a degree.
He is suing the university for not awarding him a degree. He said: “The prospectus was full of social events and swank living accommodation. They never said I had to do any work. What sort of university is that?”
Davina Pringle (not her real name) got a 2:1 in Media Studies and Alternative Medicine which failed to qualify her even for a job at McDonald’s. She is suing her university for not getting her a job as a producer with the BBC.
She said: “Working for the BBC has been my life-long dream but the university has shattered that. Even with my 2:1 they say I have to apply for a job, start at the bottom and work my way up, What sort of university is that?”
Roscoe Benjamin (not his real name) said: “I thought it was, like, a conveyor belt. You go in one end, get a degree and then they, like, move you onto a job. I didn’t, like, know there’d be job interviews and stuff. What sort of university is that, like?”
The National Universities Council said the terms of their education programs were clearly set out and well understood, by those who could read. They added that they didn’t think up-coming students could be so stupid, and blamed poor high schools.
A spokesperson said: “The schools are too busy trying to hit targets by getting their students into universities that they fail to teach them anything about life.”
