    Calls for financial compensation to students left with no specialised university facilities

    Calls for financial compensation to students left with no specialised university facilities


    As campus lectures move online, students in some subjects have no access to the specialised equipment essential to their course.

    New Zealand Union of Students Association President Isabella Lenihan-Ikin says if students can't engage in teaching they paid for up front, cost structures must be reviewed.

    She says courses like science and engineering require more specialist equipment than a Bachelor of Arts
