Petitions in UK??? Urgent please

    Hi guys, I am a student at University in UK and our class has basically had a problem with the exams and we are all petitioning for it. nearly half of our year is international students.

    My question is are international students allowed to sign a petition in University? I am asking because one of the students said he won't sign the petition because he is an international student and it would effect his visa??

    it does not make sense that visa would be in trouble because a student signed a petition in the University they study and pay for, right? can anyone shed some light on this matter, please.

    I dont believe it would make any difference at all to a persons visa. Your petition sounds like an attempt to make a legitimate complaint. Do take advice from your student reps and the students union plys follow any university protocols.

    Guys, I need a suggestion

    A suggestion for what?
