STUDENTS at Lae's University of Technology went back to classes yedsterday after a five week boycott over last year's removal of Dr Albert Schram as vice-chancellor.
Dr Schram was deported after a clash with some members of the university council but he obtained a new employment visa last week and immediately returned to Lae.
Liaison officer with the Students Representative Council, Stanley Kombra Tepoka, said they are delighted to have Dr Schram back on campus.
Mr Tepoka said students feel vindicated by the government's promise to make public the report of Judge Mark Sevua's investigation into the allegations of mismanagement and corruption that students have been complaining about.
"It's already been tabled and its already been presented to the Chancellor; now it is going to be published and the recommendations implemented,” he said.
Mr Tepoka said the two 15-week semesters will become 13-week terms to accommodate the lost weeks.
