Many students have been diagnosed the depression and anxiety. Some students face the stress experience due to such kind of situation. Students suffer self-harm in their thoughts due to lockdown.

Early starts and power outages:

According to the suggestions of CISA, the government of Australia develops an outline roadmap for the students who can start planning their return and also allocate some funding towards finding new ways to deliver better online teaching. Different relevant industries and governments offer renewal fees for the student's health cover, penalties on breaking leases, and extension of Student visa.

Many students face financial pressure and due to this, they suffer mental health issues in their studies and life.

Students who are facing financial issues expected to pay thousands of dollars for their online studies but they didn't know when they move to their campus for getting knowledge.

Students face the stress of learning and loss of experience because they are not getting the study on campus. Students feel a great loss through online studies because they have not got any kind of work experience, not getting the facilities of libraries or cafes.
