Students have protested widely in South Korea to have tuition fees returned because of online classes, which students say have been substandard.

While universities have said there is no mechanism that allows them to provide refunds, the announced agreement at Konkuk University, drawn up with student input, characterises the refunds as ‘scholarships’, enabling it to get round different types of restrictions imposed by the government. Under the agreement, students who attended the spring semester will be given an academic scholarship for use in the fall.
