Glasgow Caledonian University is known for the common good mission to make a positive difference to the community, due to the pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19), the university have transitioned to online learning from face-to-face education in a proactive measure. This is an extremely considerate and respected action taken as an organisation, but also arises a serious issue in quality of education students are facing. Online delivery of education have and will greatly impact students' learning experience. The quality of education is not up to the standard students expect for such high cost of tuition fees due to many reasons including technical difficulties and lost clarity of communication a face-to-face learning provides. Students no longer have as much access to amenities and services available on campus as they would normally have (for example, courses such as allied health course related which require provision of essential professional devices during classes these are also transferred to online thus such devices are no longer provided to aid their learnings). As the world is going through a pandemic, the economy is taking a toll on people across the globe, reducing schools fees for the duration of online classes  will greatly lessen the financial burden on the students and their family so that they can better allocate this resource during this trying time. Not to mention that the university will be benefiting from reduced running costs of facilities from this change including electricity, air-conditioning, water usage, and less maintenance just to name a few. Despite such impact and educational impairment, there has not been a single change made to tuition fees. Universities and tertiary education organisations must take into consideration these financial struggles and educational impairments students are facing, and make a reduction in tuition fees or provide partial refunds for fees already paid.
