The Union has received reports that some Gozitan LSEs who are currently reading for their MCAST Degree in Gozo haven’t been assigned a tutor to supervise over their dissertation to date.
On the other hand, LSEs reading for their Degree with MCAST in Malta had been assigned a tutor some time ago, and half of the Gozitan cohort were assigned a tutor only last Saturday.
Unfortunately, this has resulted in the creation of a disadvantage against a large number of Gozitan LSEs who are scheduled to hand in part of their dissertation by the end of April.
Due to this, the Union calls on MCAST to give an adequate extension on the deadline to make up for this inconvenience.
The UPE will continue to follow the matter for the benefit of its members.
