Callum Attrill started this petition to University of Leicester

Students are feeling ever more dissociated from their course due to growing fears of a global pandemic. We are told by our Prime Minister that many loved ones will die in this pandemic, yet we are expected to maintain a level of relaxation and composure to complete our deadlines. Were a student to deal with this on an individual basis, they would receive support and it is likely their deadlines would be delayed.

We, the Students, ask for the understanding and support of our lecturers at this time that we may not be able to complete essays to the best of our ability, that dissertations may be compromised due to government policies on where we can and cannot go, that the self isolation we face is a daunting and unprecedented issue for us to face.

Until we have a clearer view of the world we will be a part of in the wake of the Coronavirus, we suggest, at minimum, a delay on all deadlines across courses, to allow students to come to grips with a University in which they can no longer go to lectures, or speak to their supervisors on a one on one basis. Lecturers have previously asked us to understand their demands during the strikes they have been so passionately supportive of. All we ask is for your continued support and understanding of this plea, in a time where we can barely find toilet paper for our bathrooms, let alone motivation to write our latest deadline.

Thank you.
