Tianrun Wang started this petition to The Vice Chancellor of The University of Sydney

Due to Covid-19 situations and Australia's current policies, it is a pity that many international students like us are unable to study on campus. Hence, many school facilities and resources will be unavailable for us. However, we are still required to pay for these on-campus facilities and resources as they are already included in tuition fees. We understand that Covid-19 is a global pandemic and Australian government has its careful considerations about closing the borders temporarily. We also know that The University of Sydney cares about students' welfares and is willing to hear about students' requests. Hereby, we, as representations of numbers of international, sincerely request a deduction of 15 - 20% from our annual tuition fees until we are allowed to travel back to the campus. Like University of Queensland and other world-class universities, USYD could also adopt this measure to attract more future students.

Besides, with unstable network and VPN connection, we are willing to have both live and recording of all online courses. Hence, we will be able to clarify doubts immediately in class and watch lecture recordings afterwards. We would like to participate in the lectures and tutorial sessions and have immediate discussions with our classmates. Attendence of the classes should not be mandatory so that students in different timezones can study at their own time. We suggest instructors to match students in groups with a consideration their timezones and shall set flexible deadlines for students based on their locations. 

IT IS A HARD TIME FOR ALL OF US.
SIGN THE PETITION AND STAY STRONG.
