Overseas students also reimbursement made of some of their fees due to covid

All students should be reimbursed or reduced fee of this years tuition fees as universities are now online only due to COVID-19, with only powerpoints online for learning materials which is not worthy of up to £9,250 for UK and further more cost for international students including survival in UK.

This petition was rejected on 13th Jan 2021 as it duplicates an existing petition

The Petition Committee commented:

With lockdown its very hard for International students to get a job or get help from back home.
Also disrupted student-staff interaction and personalised help, with staff not replying to emails or available for meetings. Grading is also being delayed. Overall, university quality is poor this year and certainly not worth up to thousands. This needs to be looked into. Also some consideration taken into account due to covid.
