Academic Fees for 2020/21


  • 27/11/2020 - Working On
74

Being an International Student, I think our fees (including Home-Students as well) should be reduced because we are paying quite alot just for having online classes and barely having a face-to-face interaction and as the cases keep increasing, it seems like we won't be having socials and other activities as well. All-in-all, we're not getting the entire and proper university experience because of COVID and I feel that everyone has been impacted in some-way or the other by this and therefore our tution fees should be reduced for this Academic Year.

Have you considered that refunding tuition fees will almost certainly come in part from academics salaries. The academic side of the university will suffer, either by losing staff or repute or both. I don't know if international fees work the same way, but as most home students will never pay off the whole of their debt anyway, what's a little bit more?

Have you also considered the effect this will have on students who are on scholarships, who have in many cases been unable to defer their studies because of the scholarship terms and conditions? Students on scholarships must also be compensated in some way, in the event of any refunds. Also, this is simply not good enough for postgrad masters students, who only have two terms of teaching in total.
