The Faculty of Health Sciences may require a student to show good cause why it should allow the student to re-enrol in a degree, diploma, graduate diploma or graduate certificate in the Faculty if it considers that the student has not made satisfactory progress towards fulfilling the requirements for the award.
It is not possible to define satisfactory progress in all cases in advance, but the Faculty considers that a student's progress is unsatisfactory if the student has:
enrolled on a full-time basis but has not successfully completed all first year requirements within two years;
enrolled on less than a full-time basis, but has not successfully completed those units of study that the Faculty requires him or her to complete in the first year of his or her approved program of study within two years;
enrolled following exclusion from another Faculty or degree or diploma in the University or in another tertiary institution but has not successfully completed those subjects that the Faculty requires him or her to complete in the first year.
The Faculty may require a student to show good cause why it should allow the student to re-enrol in a unit of study that the student has failed or discontinued with failure more than once.
If the Faculty permits a student whose progress it considers unsatisfactory to re-enrol, the Faculty may require the student to complete specified units of study within a specified time. If the student does not satisfy this requirement the Faculty may again call upon the student to show good cause why the Faculty should allow him or her to re-enrol.
To satisfy the academic requirement for a University award, students must obtain a passing grade in all units of study in their courses.
Students must repeat failed units of study or their equivalent at the first opportunity and will be permitted to progress to the next semester in addition to repeating failed units of study, providing course requirements, including any prerequisites, corequisites and attendance requirements, can be met.
Detailed information about progression and show cause is set out in the Faculty of Health Sciences Handbook.
All candidates must complete the requirements for the degree no later than the end of the twelfth semester of candidature.
