The University should abolish all hidden course costs so that tuition fees cover all aspects of students' education

Passed: November 2021 (23rd)

What do you want? / Why do you want it?

Tuition fees are already too high, especially for international students, so why doesn't this fee cover all costs of education? Many students have to pay for additional resources, books, journals, equipment, software, etc. Without buying these things that aren't covered by tuition fees, a student may feel disadvantaged or worry that if they had more money, then they would achieve better grades. Low income should not have an impact on academic experience, so all aspects of education should be covered by tuition fees.
