LONDON: An Indian student in the UK has started an online petition urging the UK parliament to come to the aid of students in the wake of the disturbances to the academic year because of the lockdown.
The petition has sought the below. Once the petition has received 10,000 signatures, then the government will respond to this petition.
Extend Tier-4 visas and waive third-term tuition fee for international students
• We request the government to extend the Tier-4 visas of all the international students (Whoever joined any one-year PG course in September 2019) by six months.
• We request you to waive the third term tuition fee as we are not able to use most of the university’s resources except online teaching.
All the International students in the UK have been paying huge fee for the postgraduate courses. But, we are unable to use most of the university’s resources because of Covid-19.
We are not delivered the value for money that we have paid. This is not the problem of students from just one university, it’s a problem that every international student in UK has been facing.
So, we believe that only government can help in this situation as the number of people getting affected is huge.
