Tuition Fee Compensation for International Students in UK Universities
The UK Government must compensate International students for tuition fees for the academic year 2020/21. Lockdowns have had a massive impact on quality of teaching and student experience of International students. It is vital for UK Government to provide at least partial compensation.
Universities have failed to provide adequate teaching due to national lockdowns, and many universities cannot afford to refund these students. Therefore, it is necessary for UK Government to compensate International students, who have added over £20bn/year to the UK economy over the years (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-42637971).
International students could not return/arrive to campus due to abrupt changing UK Government guidelines which has severely impacted their university experience.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
