This option makes the most sense because:
1) Students enrolled this year already expecting a 30 week year. Give us what we enrolled for.
2) The block plan extends our time in university to 32 weeks (normal 120 point year). BUT, if you have more papers, you're disadvantaged and have to add 4 weeks per EXTRA paper (e.g. my year would be 36 weeks long opposed to 30).
3) You are still going to graduate ON TIME. And for people who have jobs, families, important plans = finishing on time is everything.

I need to graduate on time. It's a huge cost to extend 7 weeks more. And the AUT did not listen to students, or ask for the feedback before deciding to change the structure. Very disgraceful

We need to make more noise. Change is not made passively. Keep signing and emailing everyone because change is made with noise. AUT must revert to the old model.

This is purely a money grab by AUT. These students have paid for and completed the academic requirements delivered and administered by the AUT faculty to this point in time. Thus a contract was entered into by both parties for delivery and payment of a service and in some cases accommodation as well over a specified term structure. To now rewrite the students contracts with AUT to a different set of services over a different period of time without prior negotiation with the students is a breach of the original contract the students entered into. The proposal of AUT is legally flawed and should be be disputed by the student body through the appropriate legal body.

This is so f**k up!!! It's already hard enough for all of us because of the covid-19, lockdown, loss of jobs and so on. Now, AUT wants to prolong our study and change everything????? Seriously????
