After the latest round of lockdowns imposed on the U.K, yet again University students have been neglected. With deadlines fast approaching for many students and in particular final year students- who are also being expected to write up to 10,000 words (or more) dissertations on top of all other assignments- many students do not have the mental capacity to continue writing assignments to the same standard and pace that is expected.

Not only have many students been severely affected mentally since the first lockdown in March 2020 (with some Universities giving very little support), some students are having to work on the frontline as key workers on top of keeping up with their studies. As well as this many students are having to choose between being at home to care for family members and shield where they may not have a safe/quiet space to learn in,have no internet access and pay rent for University accommodation they can no longer return to or live in accommodation away from their families for the foreseeable future unable to visit other students or family- which can be vital for students living alone or with people they may not get along with.

In addition to everything else stated, teaching for many has not been to the standard that students were expecting, with many students not even having live lectures and paying 9k for PowerPoint presentations!

School exams have been cancelled/postponed and millions of people have been furloughed... UNIVERSITY STUDENTS SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN ABOUT-PAUSE OUR DEADLINES!!!
