UNIVERSITY REQUIREMENTS FOR UNDERGRADUATE COURSEWORK AWARDS

1. GRANTING OF AN AWARD OF THE UNIVERSITY

Candidates who have fulfilled the conditions of the Requirements for the Award in which they are enrolled and have complied with all Statutes and other Requirements applicable to them may be granted the Award.

2. SUBJECT ENROLMENT

In each year of enrolment, each student is required to nominate a selection of subjects. The Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the appropriate faculty may reject a student’s enrolment and/or selection of subjects where the selection of subjects does not conform to the requirements of the award or where enrolment in a particular subject is restricted. At the direction of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor some students will be required to attend an enrolment advisory session. However, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the selection of subjects conforms to the requirements of the award in which the student is enrolled; and acceptance by the University of a student’s enrolment and selection of subjects must not be taken as confirmation that the selection of subjects conforms to the requirements of the award in which the student is enrolled.

3. CONCURRENT ENROLMENT

A candidate shall not enrol concurrently for any other degree or diploma of this or any other institution of higher education without the written permission of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the appropriate faculty or in the case of joint or interfaculty degrees, the Pro-Vice-Chancellors of the appropriate Faculties.

4. MAXIMUM ENROLMENT

The maximum enrolment for any candidate will normally be restricted to 15 credit points per teaching period without the special approval of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the appropriate faculty. The normal enrolment for a full-time candidate is 24 credit points in an academic year.

5. NORMAL PERIOD OF CANDIDATURE

A three year degree requires 72 credit points and is normally completed in three years of full-time study or the part-time equivalent; a four year degree requires 96 credit points and is normally completed in four years of full-time study or the part-time equivalent.

Candidates’ attention is drawn to the Re-enrolment Requirements which require that candidates progress with their studies in accordance with the conditions set down by those Requirements.

Candidates are not permitted to undertake more than the minimum number of credit points required to complete their degree without the approval of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor.

6. ENROLMENT STATUS

A full-time candidate for any particular year is one who in that year enrols for subjects to the value of at least 18 credit points.

A part-time candidate for any particular year is one who in that year enrols for subjects to the value of less than 18 credit points.

7. SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION OF ENROLMENT

Where a student’s enrolment is suspended or terminated, their attendance at the University, participation in on-line tuition or participation in a professional or clinical placement will cease, with effect from the date of suspension or termination.

8. COMPLETION OF A SUBJECT

To complete a subject a candidate shall, in the one academic year, fulfil the requirements of the appropriate School as approved by the appropriate faculty for that subject in regard to attendance at lectures and classes, presentation of oral, written, practical and field work and satisfactory performance in examinations or in other forms of assessment. These conditions will be specified in each subject outline issued at the commencement of the subject.

9. PREREQUISITE SUBJECTS

Except with faculty permission, granted on advice from the Head of the appropriate School, a candidate may not enrol for any subject until a passing grade has been obtained for any prerequisite subject or subjects or other conditions have been met as detailed in the Master Schedule of subjects.

A candidate who withdraws from a subject after the final date for withdrawal without academic penalty shall be deemed to have failed in the subject unless the faculty is satisfied that there are special reasons for waiving this provision.
