Stop the Curtin Trimonster
We are calling on Curtin University to withdraw its proposal to introduce Trimesters, cut our tuition free week and cut our study week before exams. Curtin must engage with students and their representatives to provide for genuine consultation about this proposal.
Why is this important?
Curtin University has sneakily unveiled a plan in the middle of exams to introduce Trimesters. This plan would see Curtin Students lose a tuition free week each semester as well as their study week or teaching week before exams. All this so they can squeeze in a whole extra semester each year.
These proposals would see students and staff under more pressure, with less time for study and assessments. Less time to work and support their families and puts students receiving Centrelink, Private Health and Transperth concessions at risk amongst numerous other problems.
We all deserve a quality education and this proposal will result in the exact opposite.
Stop the Trimonster. Save our Semesters.
