We are all living in uncertain times now due to the global crisis currently going on, it has affected all aspects of our daily lives, and society as a whole. In the UK we are currently on lockdown and we are not sure when this will come to an end. During these uncertain times, there is a lot of fear and anxiety from people's finances and employment to education. 

The universities, much like most companies and people, are doing what they can to continue running as much as they can, with most universities now introducing online-based learning and teaching. However, although online teaching has been introduced, students no longer have access to facilities and learning environments including libraries. The resources we have access to have now been reduced and because of this, the cost of the resources we are using has reduced for the universities. We are not able to access the full resources we would usually have access to.

From the students' point-of-view, the last tuition fee of the academic year 2020 should be discounted, due to the resources we usually have access to having been reduced. Not all students get enough funding to cover their tuition fees as well as accommodation fees and with the pressure, all members of the public are feeling at the moment, this would help support students and their families immensely. This is the last tuition payment out of three for the year, and we are not asking for it to be cancelled but to be discounted for this semester.
