A class of students at RMIT University were offered full marks on an assessment if they took part in Friday’s climate strike.

In an email to students, which found its way onto social media, the lecturer said students could skip his lecture to attend the strike and receive full marks on a project worth 5 per cent in return.

“All you need to do is email me a group selfie in the crowd,” the teacher wrote.

“Photos with less than half of the group members will not be accepted.

“In case you do not have enough people for the photo I suggest you attend the lecture and the group meeting.”

RMIT said it would investigate to “ensure assessment integrity” had been maintained.
