These course rules and specifications apply to students commencing the course in 2010. For students who commenced prior to 2010, the applicable course rules are those from the year of commencement. i.e. students who commenced in 2006 should refer to the 2006 Handbook.
The program of units for the course is set out in the schedule below. The course comprises 2 years full-time study (or its part-time equivalent) in compulsory academic and practicum units.
Full-time students are required to enrol in units with a combined weighting of not more than 100%.
Students will not be permitted any more than two attempts at any academic unit and must complete the two practicum units in not more than three attempts (including withdrawals) for the two units. Where students fail a field practicum they may be required to complete additional work specified by the Head of Discipline before being permitted to re-enrol in that field practicum. If students cannot complete the practicum units in three attempts (due to failure or withdrawal) they will not be eligible for the degree unless they receive the specific permission of the Head of Discipline to re-enrol.
