Updated Senate 26 August 2010
Part 1 — All Awards
Unless otherwise stated, the application of the general award rules may be displaced wholly or partly by a different intention appearing in any program rule.
The dictionary in Schedule 1 defines particular words used in these rules and the program rules.
1.1.3 Source of an award or course
If no source is specified for an award or course, it may come from the university or elsewhere. If the latter, the associate dean (academic) must be satisfied it is comparable to the award or course at the university.
1.1.4 Satisfaction of specified standard
Where a provision requires the satisfaction of a specified standard or threshold, unless a different intention is expressed, it does not prohibit exceeding the standard.
● “a student must include 2 majors” — does not prevent including 3 majors.
● “a student must include #4 from part A” — does not prohibit the inclusion of more than #4 from part A.
● “a student must get one-third of the units” — does not prevent getting more than one-third.
● However, “a student may get up to one-third” does not permit getting over one-third.
● “the associate dean (academic) must appoint 2 examiners” — does not prevent appointing 3 examiners.
● “gain a grade of 3” is satisfied by gaining a higher grade.
1.1.5 Course level
The level of a course is indicated —
(a) expressly in the program list; or
(b) in any other case, by the fifth character of the course code.
In these rules and the program rules, words in the singular include the plural and words in the plural include the singular.
1.1.7 Study at the university
For a student to count a course as work done or study undertaken at the university —
(a) the course must be approved by the academic board;
(b) the student must be enrolled in the course; and
(c) the grade awarded to the student must be determined by the university.
1.2. Grant of awards
1.2.1 To gain an award a student must —
(a) comply with the statutes and rules; and
(b) complete the program.

1.5.2 Despite GAR 1.51 (d), a student may gain credit for a course at a pre-2006 grade of 3 if the grade of 3 does not take the student’s total of 3s beyond one-eighth of the total units required for the award.
1.5.3 In GAR 1.5.2 “total of 3s” does not include courses in which the student has subsequently gained a higher grade.
1.5.4 GAR 1.5.1(d) overrides any program rule.
1.6 Credit for other study
1.6.1 A student must get one-third of the units required for an award —
(a) by studies undertaken at the university; and
(b) in courses not credited towards another completed award.
However, “completed award” does not include an award that is surrendered.
1.6.2 The credit granted to a student holding more than one award must be no more than the maximum available for the best. “The best” means the award held by the student for which the most credit is available.

1.6.5 When a student has been granted credit —
(a) on first enrolling in a program; and
(b) for work undertaken in a previous program; and
(c) the work has not been credited to a completed award,
credit for that work cannot be credited towards the previous program.
1.6.6 In administering a “maximum credit for other study” rule in program rules, treat courses completed in the suite as study completed while enrolled in the program.
1.6.7 GARs 1.6.1 and 1.6.2 override any program rule.
1.7 Credit for other study — dual program
1.7.1 Subject to GAR 1.6, a student undertaking a dual program may get credit for a previously completed award, if —
(a) the associate dean (academic) approves; and
(b) the credit sought is no more than one-third of the total units required by the student to complete the dual program.
1.7.2 GAR 1.7 overrides any program rule.
1.8 Cancellation of credit
1.8.1 If counting credit towards a current program, including credit for previous study, would mean that more than the credit cancellation period will elapse between the start of the study for which credit is to be counted and the expected time for completion of the current program, an associate dean (academic) may —
(a) cancel credit for a course; or
(b) cancel credit granted for a completed award; or

(c) for a coursework master — 7 years; or
(d) for other programs — 10 years.
1.8.3 An associate dean (academic) may only cancel credit under this rule if —
(a) the program contains no comparable course; or
(b) the course was passed or the award gained so long ago that the student is unlikely to be able to continue the current program satisfactorily without undertaking further work.
1.9 Discontinuance of a program
A student who has started a program must be given a reasonable opportunity to finish it even if the program is no longer offered to others.
1.9A Transitional rules for introduction of postgraduate coursework programs replacing all or part of an undergraduate program
1.9A.1 Senate may establish a transitional scheme to allow students to transfer from an undergraduate program to a postgraduate program if the undergraduate program is being discontinued or replaced, wholly or partially, by a postgraduate program.
1.9A.2 A transitional scheme established under this rule must be set out in the program rules for the postgraduate program.
1.9A.3 A transitional scheme under GAR 1.9A.2 must —
(a) define the cohort of students entitled to access the transitional scheme; and
(b) specify the program of study and minimum number of units a student is required to obtain to be eligible for the postgraduate award; and
(c) not lower academic standards.
1.9A.4 When determining the minimum units for the transitional scheme under GAR 1.9A.3(b), GARs 1.6.4 and GAR 3.4 do not apply if senate considers the late year courses undertaken by students while enrolled in the undergraduate program are comparable to the courses a student is required to undertake in the postgraduate program.
1.9A.5 Students entitled to access the transitional scheme are not eligible to apply for credit under GAR 1.6 or under a specific program rule.
1.9A.6 The minimum units required under the GAR 1.9A.3(b) must not be less than 50% of the program requirements for the postgraduate program.

1.11.1 A student may enrol for courses up to the following limits —
(a) #6 — for a summer semester; and
(b) for another semester —
(i) #10 — with a GPA of 4.5; or

1A.19.6 The maximum grade available for a course in which a student is granted a supplementary assessment is a grade of 4.
1A.19.7 The final grade for a student who has undertaken a supplementary assessment is the higher mark obtained from either the original assessment or the supplementary assessment.

(a) by the academic registrar at any time if satisfied the change is needed to correct a patent error; or
(b) by the executive dean before the remark finalisation date on being satisfied that —
