Due to Covid-19 the University made the decision to provide students with a 'blended-learning' approach, promising both in person and online teaching. This of course is a sensible decision to ensure the safety of both students and staff, however, this approach needs to be reflected fairly in the tuition students are paying. Personally, upon receiving my timetable, I have found that I have 1-2 in-person contact hours a week. Had I known this much earlier than one week before teaching is due to start, I would have made every effort to get a release/another Tennant to cover my £10,000 tenancy contract. We as students are not asking for a full refund because that would be an unfair and biased response against the university. However, it is undeniable the quality and the access to resources that we pay for and are promised when attending university has been massively reduced. The least the university could do is provide a breakdown for where our tuition is directed, for both home and international students. There has been no remorse or sympathy on the university's part for our positions. Yes this is a difficult time for us all, but university students have been neglected by both the government and educational institutions. There has been zero consideration and empathy on both parts regarding students being tied into housing contracts signed pre Covid, and the university is seemingly not supporting us in this regard whatsoever. Instead we have been placed under a massive financial pressure to pay for both housing that many students are not using or do not need to use since teaching is 90% online, and a year of tuition that is proving to not be worth the money. We are told we will be receiving the same level and quality as in previous years, but if the majority of the student body are not agreeing, surely there needs to be some form of compromise. If the university wants to be treated as a business and is clearly only concerned about money, then surely, if its 'customers' are not satisfied, compensation is deserved.
