New Uni Model
Creative arts students will lodge a formal complaint against Melbourne University, claiming they are being short-changed and not getting the degree they were promised as it shifts to a US-style model.
Creative arts is one of 96 degrees being cut as the university adopts the Melbourne Model, eventually teaching only six undergraduate courses and moving all professional programs to graduate level.
The university will continue to teach existing courses until all students finish, but creative arts students say the prestigious degree they enrolled in has disappeared, subjects have been cut, contact hours have been reduced and staff who left over summer have not been replaced.
Meanwhile our country has nobody doing science. That'll teach them for doing creative arts, I say.
