Fields and Disciplines Offered

Prerequisites

  • Each unit description includes a list of any required prerequisites.
  • A unit cannot be undertaken for the degree unless the prerequisites (or their equivalent) have been fulfilled or unless approval has been received from the lecturer and the Academic Dean or Postgraduate Coordinator for the prerequisite to be waived.

Unit Evaluations

  • The College is committed to ongoing review and improvement in learning and teaching. Student feedback makes an important contribution to this process. 
  • Each semester students are invited to review their study experience by completing a one-page unit evaluation form for each enrolled unit. These anonymous evaluations ask students to reflect on their own learning and participation in the unit, and to give feedback on matters such as the unit’s teaching methods, assessment tasks and library resources.
  • Lecturers draw on this feedback in developing the units they are responsible for, and discuss unit evaluation reports each semester at department meetings. A summary report is also presented each semester to the Academic Board and Senate, and has led to initiatives such as professional development for staff, revision to policies, and changes to the support provided to students.
  • Unit evaluations are limited to the academic areas noted above. Student feedback or concerns on other matters should be addressed directly to the lecturer in the first instance, and then to the Academic Dean or the Master.
