This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not directly responsible for.

Decisions about whether elements of university courses are delivered virtually are a matter for individual universities, not the UK Government or Parliament.

As a result it is not possible for the Government or Parliament to take the action you have requested.

If you wish to raise a complaint against how your university is delivering teaching during the pandemic, you can contact the Office for the Independent Adjudicator for higher education here:
