Mrs Dodds said,

“I welcome the conclusion of this stand-off, but it is those students who faced uncertainty about their degree who will most warmly welcome the certainty it provides them. Whilst university lecturers deserve a fair pay award, the dispute was not merely disrupting students, but could have impacted their employment prospects in a competitive job market.

I made representations for some of the students who faced this uncertainty, and I am glad they will now have their classification confirmed before the end of the summer.”
