Cardiff Vice-Chancellor says students graduating is top priority amidst strike action

He stressed his priority in an email


In the email sent out to all students, Vice-Chancellor Colin Riordan has stressed that students graduating is his main priority.

After The Tab revealed last week that the strike action could stop students from graduating, VC Colin Riordan sent an email to all students stating "my intention is to ensure all students will be able to meet their learning outcomes and will be able to graduate as expected".

He went on to say "that is and will remain, my top priority".

Along with students graduating, he's also prioritising compensation. He says that his priority is "to ensure that all students are provided with appropriate learning opportunities and you are supported to achieve the relevant learning outcomes of your modules and programme".

He resonates with students, saying "like you, I want these issues resolved and to avoid any disruption to your studies."

To ensure that students are fully aware of what will be happening during the strikes, the Students' Union are holding a Q&A meeting with professor Colin Riordan, Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff University.

The meeting will be held today in The Great Hall on the first floor of the Students' Union, Wednesday the 19th, between 12:00-13:00.

The Cardiff Tab will be reporting on the meeting later today.
