Petition for all students to be refunded for the academic year 2020/21. Although Universities are a private sector, the lack of support and guidance throughout these uncertain times has been extremely underwhelming. 

Although money is not the only issue that can be resolved from the current academic year, it is appalling that students are expected to fund a higher level education that they are not receiving. University students across the UK have not received the standard of education that is being paid for. Not only are students struggling academically but the lack of support has also had a major impact on a young persons mental health. In the UK male suicide rates are at a two decade high whilst suicide rates in teenage girls has almost doubled over the last seven years. 

Taking into account the views and opinions of other university students it is evident that the financial stress students have been put under has majorly impacted factors such as grades and mental well-being. Students have received no extra support towards paying for accommodation and fees that have not been occupied due to the pandemic. Let’s make a change by signing this petition and getting this issue the attention it deserves.
