The Migrants’ Rights Network and Unis Resist Border Controls are seeking to understand the impact of Covid-19 on Tier 4 international students in the UK. We have heard a number of students already that they have or are facing destitution, and are also now facing threats of expulsion from the higher education/university establishments because of an inability to pay fees.
The survey to be completed by international students will hopefully draw out how higher education/ university establishments are responding to the needs of these students during this pandemic. We intend to share the findings with universities, parliamentarians and the media, and hope the results can also be used to call for an end to no recourse to public fund conditions too.

The deadline for responses is 22 June 2020.
