General Education Regulations And Schedules


General Education Regulations

1 Students required to include General Education in their programme must pass courses as specified in the General Education Regulations and Schedules for their programme.

2 a A student may not take a General Education course with the same subject code as any course they have previously passed, or are already enrolled in.

b A student will not meet the General Education requirement for their programme if they subsequently enrol in a course with the same subject code as a General Education course which has been passed for their programme, unless the subsequent course is assigned to a different programme. Where appropriate the student may be able to use the course to meet another degree requirement. This regulation does not apply to LAW 121G, LAW 131, and LAW 141 provided no other LAW courses were taken.

c Students who transfer programmes and wish to meet the General Education requirement of their new programme using a course in a subject in which they have passed more than one course may do so if the General Education course is the only course in that subject credited or reassigned to their new programme.

3 A student may not take both of their General Education courses in the same subject.

4 Language courses do not satisfy the General Education requirement for a student who has prior knowledge of the language (for example, as a native speaker, through formal or informal study, or through living with others who speak the language). A student with prior knowledge of the language may be declined enrolment or the enrolment may be deleted at the discretion of the Academic Head or nominee.

5 A student who is required to meet the Academic English Language Requirement as specified in the Enrolment and Programme Regulations, Academic English Language Requirement, of the University Calendar, may substitute an academic English language course approved by Senate or its representative for 15 points of General Education.

Notes:

A student must enrol in the General Education offering of a course in order to meet the General Education requirements of their programme.

(ii) Some General Education courses have limits on the number of students who can enrol. Places in these courses will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

(iii) Students who have met the Academic English Language Requirement under Regulations 14-16 of the Enrolment and Programme Regulations, Academic English Language Requirement, of the University Calendar cannot use ACADENG 100, 101, or ENGWRIT 101 to meet the General Education requirement for their degree.
