Reduce university fees to students for the year 2020-2021 due to COVID

The Government should refund partial tuition fees to UK university students during the online teaching period of 2020-21 due to Covid 19. The online lectures are not equal to face to face lectures. Students are paying full tuition fees for online lectures and are not getting the full uni experience.

This petition was rejected on 8th Jan 2021 as it duplicates an existing petition

As students, we have to pay back the loans we have taken out for university. The year of 2020-21 we are paying the full fee for only online teaching during the pandemic. This is affecting all university students to not to achieve their best outcome.

We need Parliament to come to an agreement to help students to be able to get in with university and get jobs to help pay back loans and their taxes. Help the students help you.
