How has the pandemic affected your learning experience in the 2020/21 academic year?
Jan 12, 2021
It’s been really difficult. educationally and socially. I appreciate that rest is good after a long days work but for a lot of us we recharge from being with people. I love my flat but they’re all on a different course to me and it would help if I could meet up with my class to study. My heart goes out to people who don‘t live with any friends, some are sort of bullied a bit too and I wish I could be there and support them or make my flat a home to them too. It’s difficult because It’s hardly the teachers faults, their doing everything to give us the best and considering the circumstances I think they’re doing well. The government need to pull their finger out though. I wish there was something I could do other than nothing! it’s really discouraging seeing things get worse and young people being blamed and the arts getting put in the bog every time when so many benefit from us. I told my mum film and tv should just be cancelled and she said ‘no how would we survive lockdown without tv’ . I thought exactly.
