This petition was started on behalf of the Graduate Students of Management Students Program of the University of the West Indies Open Campus. The students are disgruntled by the changes administer by the Program Delivery Department which have ultimately resulted in a lengthier schedule.

As it stands, the students of the 2016 year intake are expressing their disapproval of this change as it has deeply affected their financial, contractual, social and even psychological dispositions. Persons would have budgeted, acquired loans, entered into contractual agreements with their places of employment and even the Government of their respective countries. Making such unwarranted changes to the program schedule has now diminished all the hard work of the students who- under the previous schedule- would have been completing their program in 2017 to early 2018. Now, under limitations and restrictions of the availability of courses and increase in fees, students would be forces to stay longer doing their Masters Programs.

To us, this is unacceptable and we will fight for our program to remain the same allowing us to complete our programs within the initially outlined time-frames.
