Ellie Foulger started this petition to City University of London

This year has been one of the toughest a lot of students have ever faced, and we have done it with next to no support from City.

City, University of London must recognise and address the short falls that many students are facing and honour a refund / reduction in fees for 2020 / 2021 to account for the severe and disappointing drop in quality in our degrees. Remote learning has been less than satisfactory for many of us, from a lack of content and guidance to poor quality pre-recordings to some students facing bare minimum contact hours. A chilling example from my own course (law) is many students going from 96 contact hours per term to 24 hours over the 2020/2021 academic year – How is this worth the same price?

City also needs to recognise the students demands for rent. Rent in halls of residents to reduced for all students by at least 30% for the remaining academic year. Refunds for ALL students who were advised to NOT move back to their accommodation until after January. ALL students should be offered a no-penalty release clause from their tenancy. City also must recognise the adverse effects on students by providing increased wellbeing support to BOTH student and staff including cleaning and maintenance staff. Finally, City MUST commit to supporting its students that are at the heart and soul of our community in their strike in evert way, including a commitment to not take any disciplinary action against them.
