An Exeter website that links to a university website with an advertisement for a “student-run email service” is not the way it should be, a former Exeter student has said.
Exeter’s website features a “signup for email” link that leads to a “news article” section with “a list of all the email addresses” it uses.
But, on the “About Exeter” page of the website, it’s labelled “Students Only” with no reference to the university or its student government.
The website contains a list of Exeter’s university-run student email services, including a link to a list on the university’s website.
It also includes a link that states: “You may be redirected to this page after the site has been reviewed by Exeter Student Government”.
The University of Exmouth, a student-run organisation in Exeter, has said it has been contacted by the Association of Students with Adverse Experiences (ASHA) to investigate whether the advert is legitimate.
The Association of Student with Advantages has called for the university to remove the advertisement from its website.
Mr Boughan said the university should be transparent about the service it uses to reach students and students should not have to wait to be redirected.
“Students are entitled to a prompt response to any requests for information or assistance, but the university is clearly not doing that,” he said.
He said the “sign-up for emails” link could be “misleading” and that it could lead to people being redirected to a website where they would not find any information about the email service.
“The students on that list have not been contacted, they are not getting any contact, there is no sign up for them.”
We want to make sure the university website is in the public domain so that students can see who they are being directed to,” he added.
Mr Coyle said it was a “significant breach” for the University of Oxford to use such an advertisement, but that it was also misleading to the Exeter students.”
If the university says they’re only using one service, and if the service they’re using is a student run email service, that could be misleading and could mislead students,” he told the programme.”
But if the university uses an advertisement that is not actually for a student service, I think the university would have to say that the advertisement is misleading.
“He said that Exeter had a long-standing reputation for transparency and transparency was vital.”
That’s what the students should be excited about, that they are going to be able to get the information they want, and to be informed,” he explained.
The university’s chief information officer, John O’Sullivan, told the program that there was “nothing in the advertising that could reasonably be construed to be misleading”.
He said: “It’s just a service that the university offers students.
We’ve made it clear in our communications that it’s a student led service.
Students don’t receive any special access, they can use the same service that any other student would use.
“Mr O’Sullivans spokesperson said Exeter did not believe the advert was misleading.
The advertisement has not been removed from the university site, but has been removed to avoid any misunderstanding.
Mr O’tSullivan said: “[Exeter] is proud of its commitment to a robust academic and research environment and we continue to work closely with students to ensure the best possible experience for students.
The university takes this seriously and will continue to ensure students receive all of the information and support they need to succeed.
“Exeter University has been criticised in recent years for its handling of sexual assault and harassment claims.
In November, Exeter published a report finding that the “student life” department was “unable to accurately and objectively assess the allegations” of sexual misconduct.
It is one of a number of universities in the UK that have had similar complaints about the way they deal with sexual misconduct complaints.
