Non Pecuniary damages

What about a statutory claim under the Consumer Rights Act 2015? I think I have 6 years for this. I was specifically thinking of section 49:

49.Service to be performed with reasonable care and skill


If I can establish that discrimination in the provision of services by the university is a breach of this clause, then I may be able to claim a price reduction on the fees:

56.Right to price reduction


But what happens if my fees were paid by way of a bursary? These were paid directly to the university by the NHS Business Services Authority. As I did not pay these from my own pocket, where does this leave section 56 as a right to a price reduction?

Be certain that this Act applies to higher education. I have not had time to check, but that is the first thing I would do.

It does apply to higher education. Here is a short article on a solicitors website about it:

It still leaves me with the question, of where do I stand if my fees were paid by an NHS bursary? How would claiming a price reduction on the fees work?
