    Alumni discount not applied

    Alumni discount not applied 13th Mar 19 at 7:08 PM
    Hi all,

    I recently graduated and then completed my teacher training at the same university. It was only at the graduation did I notice a sign that said that alumni from the university should receive a 10% discount. I emailed the university and they responded with:

    "I am sorry but you should have applied for the Alumni Discount before starting the Teacher Training programme. "

    Does anyone know of any grounds for it being reimbursed?

    Thanks in advance!

    Probably only goodwill, and if they've already turned that down you may be out of luck.

    Sorry Op. you appear to have a history of not noticing things that are in front of you?

    Teacher training. My advice is to pay more attention in class.

    Learn from experience, and if you ever become a teacher learn from your pupils as well.

  • Should the contactless payment limit be increased? If so, to what? Pls vote in this week's MSE site poll...

  • No its completely wrong. Your contract is with the shop that you bought it off. The staff at o2 should be better?
