Nigerian student drags UK varsity to adjudicator over PhD dispute

A Nigerian student, Josephine Lawal, has taken the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, United Kingdom, before the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for High Education (OIA) over the varsity’s cancellation of her doctorate programme despite paying £20,000 for school fees.
The OIA is the last resort for student complaints in England and Wales and reviews cases after students have exhausted all options of getting redress.

Lawal started her PhD at the London campus of the university in 2012 and alleged that the first supervisor assigned to her, Dr Rob Harris, left her for one year.

She also told our correspondent that another supervisor assigned to her, Dr Sunita Dewitt, was inexperienced, adding that complaints to the varsity about the poor supervision of her project went unheeded.

The Kwara State indigene claimed that after submitting her thesis in December 2016, the varsity broke its own rule by bringing Harris for the viva (oral defence), adding that the external supervisor was also late by about one hour.

While demanding a refund of her £20,000 school fees, she said the school later offered to convert her programme to a master of philosophy (Mphil).
