Campaign

Our aim is to bring together students who have been caught up in this destructive and corrupt system, to campaign for changes which will offer protection for future students, and to win compensation and other recompense for students who have already been damaged by this system. There are many such students, and some have left an indelible mark on the Internet. We need now to bring those marks together in one place, with the aim of concentrating their effectiveness when newly affected students seek information on how they can be helped. The following represent separate campaigns launched by student victims who have been irretrievably damaged by the corrupt HE system, and its even more corrupt complaints body.

The Lamp Post

Trevor Mayes's Lamp Post is a website that gives a personal account of corruption in universities, where there appears to be growing evidence that there is a policy in place throughout HE for universities to create false allegations of plagiarism, to weed out those who are considered in some way undesirable. The use of false or inaccurately recorded documentation, the destruction of documentation after it has served its dubious purpose, and the discreditation of the student victim by a range of means are just a few of the subjects touched on in this comprehensive account. The website is full of useful information on a large range of subjects and is unmissable as an information resource. Visit Trevor Mayes - The Lamp Post

How To Build Your Campaign

Getting Started

After The Fact

So, Your university has attacked you. Now what? You will certainly be upset, disorientated and angry. You might also be isolated, discredited, psychologically injured, financially disadvantaged, and a host of other things besides! Listen carefully!!! ...

What Do I Need To Do?

First, decide what stage you are at:

1.  It's only just happened, I don't know what to do, or where to turn!
Stay calm...
You are not alone! We have extensive experience of what you are going through. Firstly, remember that this is probably not your fault. Secondly, remember that whatever happens from this point forward, your physical and mental health are the two most important things to maintain. Take some time to carefully evaluate the situation. Use the information in our flowchart to help you to explore your options.

2.  I've complained to my university, but I'm still not satisfied!
Your university has procedures which it MUST follow, in order to handle your case fairly. The first stage is usually to make an informal oral complaint, if the problem is not too serious. Your university may not even recognise this as part of their complaints process, so it is important to ask for the complaints procedure documentation right from the start. If your complaint is more serious, then the first stage will almost certainly involve a written complaint. In that case, your university must recognise your complaint as a formal complaint. Universities usually consider complaints at two formal stages, stage 1 and stage 2. The "Complaints Procedures" for your own university will explain how the university will deal with your complaint at each stage. On completion of a stage, your university should decide if they accept the merits of your complaint, and if so, should offer you a remedy for your complaint. They should also explain what further action is available to you, should you be unhappy with their findings. It is at this point that you need to decide whether to accept their findings and the remedy, or to move to the next stage. Each stage will have an increasing level of formality. Once all the stages available to you at the university are exhausted, the university MUST issue you a document called "Completion of Procedures". This will be written letter or form, and will indicate clearly that it is the "Completion of Procedures" document.

3.  I've completed complaining to my university, and have a completion of procedures letter.
If you have your "Completion of Procedures" letter, you have probably been advised that if you are still not satisfied, then you must take your case to the OIA. You may have been given a leaflet which serves as a sort of idiot's guide to the OIA, and by this time, you may be tempted to believe that you still have a good chance at resolution of your complaint. Unfortunately, the OIA's statistics tell a totally diffent story!
