i think it is about the university collecting money. there is some sort of requirement that students can finish undergraduate degrees in the minimum time. we need to do that otherwise our international student investors will pull out. part of the draw is that we have a 3 year undergraduate degree. universities are not allowed to make requirements or change requirements such that it is not possible (from an administration point of view) for students to enrol in / complete course requirements for their degree in 3 years. the university cannot force a student to stick around for another year by only offering final year requirement every other year, for example.

but there is no such requirement on graduate level study. so the university has it into their heads that they are allowed to make students take the MAXIMUM amount of time. any mention of 'significant' changes or any mention of the student 'keeping working' by examiners is interpreted as grounds to require the student to re-enrol for 6 additional months and pay an additional 6 months of fees. this is the case for PhD programs (3 year thesis programs) and they are making it the case for MPhil program, too, which was only a 120 point program and thus should have been completable on a 9 month one academic year timeframe...

I only enroled in the degree because I was told I could complete it in an academic year.

Then once I was enroled I was told that was not possible because it would stress my panel too much.

I think they only picked a panel who would be stressed so they could say precisely that.

They decided their strategy was to collect maximum fees from students and beg / plead incompetence.

They intentionally pick incompetent people to teach.

Then blame students for having bad work ethics, drinking too much, not attending class, and so on...

How low can we go???

I guess we see.

This really is the rubbish heap of the world.
