Disability advocates criticise 'discriminatory' university plans to end remote learning
Students who began university studies online during the coronavirus pandemic will now be required to attend classes in person, but critics say this will make it harder for vulnerable students to complete degrees.
- Students from some Australian universities who began their degrees online will need to show up in person from 2023
- Disability advocates say the decision means students at increased COVID-19 risk will struggle to finish degrees
- The National Union of Students has also criticised the move, saying remote learning improved accessibility
