There should be a refund of fees to international students

Extra Information: 

During this global pandemic, many UK students are now having to stay at home and study from home, this means the quality of the education given has significantly decreased since its only online.

Many petitions have been put forward stating that the Government should refund or decrease the amount of money UK based students will have to pay for education this year.

However, no petitions have been put forward for international students who are still having to pay £14,000* UP FRONT this year only to study online. International students also have to pay rent and other living fees on top of this £14,000 up front, making it very expensive to study abroad.

With the corona Virus spreading internationally students may also struggle to receive money from parents as parents are working in countries that do not offer government funded work leave or benefits.
