Universities and the pandemic.
It feels to many as though students have been hard done by during the pandemic. Whether that be academically, economically, mentally, or in some other way. It does not, however, feel as though this has been acknowledged by those in charge. Mr Johnson's address on January 4th did not include information about University students: exams, welfare, financial situations or living situations. Students are still expected to be paying £9250 a year for a service that is at best, nowhere near as good as what was expected, and at worst, a detriment to our mental health and wellbeing.
