Petition Action

Reduce university fees for distance learning, especially because of covid.

Petition Details

Reduce course fees for taught based undergraduate and postgraduate degrees where people have been forced to do distance learning because of covid. They cannot visit university and use resources. People should pay reduced amount because they are getting a reduced package.

Additional Information

Government should step in and force universities to reduce fees and refund those that have already paid. Its unfair to pay substantial fees when you cannot get the full university experience and access to resources and face to face contact.
