We are very grateful to the efforts of the staff and the lecturers/tutors to try and make the distance online learning as convenient as possible for us despite the difficulties and the current situation. However, the distance online learning transition that we are currently undergoing means that for the past almost 4 weeks and the rest of the spring 2020 semester, we were not and will not be on campus and do not have access to its resources and facilities that many of us have grown to rely on. Moreover, the distance online learning isn’t convenient for a very large portion of the students, for multiple reasons, but especially that there are some subjects that are almost impossible to transition to this mode of teaching, hence, not receiving the same quality of education. We are fully aware that this transition was for our benefit and is out of everyone’s hand including the university, nevertheless, this is still a financial burden on students across the university as many jobs across the country have either stopped getting paid or had a salary reduction, so given our current situation and that so many resources and facilities that are embedded in the university fees are not being consumed which also means that it costs way less now to run the university, we kindly request that the University of Wollongong in Dubai reimburse the students with 50% of the tuition fees for the spring 2020 semester.
