With COVID 19 and Strike action this semester alone, I lost approx 7-8 weeks of teaching. Additionally, as an international student, even after classes and exams were cancelled, I was required to continue to make payments last month and this month (around £2000), despite no assignments, classes, lectures or new material.

As an English Student at Dundee, I'm paying 9.25k. Education is a service I pay for, yet I'm not recieving any service. Scottish and EU students do not pay any fees. It is completly unfair and is taking advantage of RUK and International students by not providing them with an adequate product.

With Covid-19 and strike action - this semester and last - I have had approximately 8 weeks worth of classes out of 22. £6500 for that.
