Ease University Workload For Students' Health

In the wake of the deaths of two university students, both of which are believed to be linked to overwork, university students are calling for reduced workloads and more mental health support to be given in this challenging year. We hear from one of these student groups to get a glimpse of their experiences, and speak to a university professor to understand what is needed to be done.
