Students in this pathway receive 36 units of credit for previous tertiary study and undertake the following program.
Except with permission of the College the course must be completed within eight consecutive semesters.
The award of a grade of Fail (F) in the same topic on more than one occasion may constitute prima facie evidence of unsatisfactory progress for the purpose of the University's Policy on Student Progress.
A student who fails the practice component of any topic will receive a Fail grade for that topic. A student may at any time be removed from a professional experience placement for unprofessional behaviour and/or unsafe practice.
