MCAST reduces students’ learning entitlement – MUT shall issue directives
The MUT received reports that MCAST is reducing the learning entitlement of its students by reducing the number of hours allocated to study units. The reduction is considerable and ranges from 12% to 50% of the allocated hours. This unprecedented decision will affect both students and lecturers who shall be requested to teach/learn the same unit content in less time. The Union has requested a clarification to MCAST and shall be issuing directives to members if a satisfactory reply and solution is not forthcoming by Thursday 27th September.
