WAM Update for Winter Term and Semester 2

With the new lockdown restrictions in Victoria, students will again in Semester 2 face challenges which will have significant impacts on their studies. That’s why UMSU is calling on the University to keep the WAM amnesty in place for the Winter Term and Semester 2. Students simply will not be able to perform to the best of their ability next semester – many are in difficult financial positions, in difficult study environments or simply not able to learn as effectively online as they did in person. We have written to the President of the Academic Board with this request, and we will keep you posted on any response.

Any students who need assistance should get in contact with UMSU – we’re here to assist everyone to get through this difficult time.
