Lady gets £61k after suing her university over a degree that hasn’t helped her

Pok Wong, a 30-year-old graduate from Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), U.K, has won a £61K payout from the university after claiming her first-class degree hasn’t got her a job. She graduated from ARU with a degree in International Business Strategy Management in 2013, but sued the university after complaining it ‘fraudulently misrepresented’ the course. Ms Wong, who claimed her degree was a “Mickey Mouse degree”, said claims in the university’s prospectus that it was a ‘renowned centre of excellence’ that offered a ‘high quality of teaching’ were untrue. . She added that the schoool exaggerated the prospects of a career” and sued them for false advertising. Although, the university disputed the allegations, it has now agreed to pay her a £15,000 out-of-court settlement plus £46,000 towards her legal fees. In a chat with Telegraph, Wong said: “The payout means this is a victory for me, despite the university strenuously fighting my case and denying any responsibility. In light of this settlement I think universities should be careful about what they say in prospectuses. I think they often make promises which they know will never materialise or are simply not true.”
