no accommodation changes for student radiographers sign now

Dear Sirs,
For those of us on distance placements, we thus far have had the university practice placement unit source, book and pay for our secondary accommodation.
The changes to funding were only meant to come into effect for the 09/09 Cohort onwards.
When we began our study (09/07 and 09/08 cohorts) we were told secondary accommodation was going to be paid for directly in many cases this is why people chose to addend this university ahead of other educational institutions.
The old process was simply a case of getting an email saying where you were staying and instructions for key collection.
The new process means having to go and see someone in the University to fill in paperwork, have the University raise a invoice against you, claim from the NHS, wait on their decision, if your claim is accepted you have to send a cheque to the university (no other payment method has been deemed to be acceptable so those without cheque books are again at a disadvantage). If your claim is not successful you have to take a copy of the letter from the NHS to the office to waive the charges. This has to be done each semester.
Students on our course have a considerable work load and enough areas of work to be concentrating on without the additional paperwork and time and financial transactions required by this new policy.
We were told this would not affect the 09/07 and 09/08 cohort.
We urge you to rethink this change and keep the status quo which we have enjoyed thus far in our studies. This is after all what we have been promised.
