Many Victoria University students affected by bans imposed by the National Tertiary Education will now receive their results. Negotiations between Victoria University and the NTEU have progressed and in a gesture of good faith Victoria University has withdrawn its application to Fair Work Australia for an order to suspend the work bans.
Victoria University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Capital and Management Services, Jon Hickman said: "I am pleased we have been able to make progress in our negotiations with the NTEU around bans on the transmission of exam results. Many students from the Faculty of Business and Law who were facing uncertainty as they started their Semester Two units will now have clarity.
"The NTEU has agreed to submit results where students have failed Semester One units that are prerequisites for Semester Two units and for all off-shore students who have failed a Semester One unit.
"Although not all results will be available as a consequence of this agreement the fact that students will commence a Semester Two unit with the knowledge that they have passed the prerequisite Semester One unit will alleviate a great deal of concern for many students affected by the bans.
"Releasing results for off-shore students will also give students enrolled in our off-shore programs greater confidence as they progress their Semester Two studies.
"The University will continue to work toward having those results that are still outstanding submitted," Mr Hickman said.
