2 Except as otherwise specified in these regulations, each student’s programme is to be governed by the regulations for each of the component degrees.

3 Only when all the requirements for both component degrees have been satisfied may the two degrees be conferred upon the student.

Admission

4 Admission to a conjoint degrees combination may be at initial enrolment, or after the student has passed or been credited with not more than 270 points for either component degree, but the student must not have graduated in either of the component degrees.

5 a A student for a conjoint degrees combination must gain admission to each of the component degrees

and

b achieve a standard equivalent to a Grade Point Equivalent (GPE) of at least 3.9, except for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) which requires a GPE of at least 5.5, in the last year of full-time study.

Continuation

6 In order to continue in a conjoint degrees combination, a student needs to achieve a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.5 each year, except for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) conjoint degrees combinations which require a GPA of 4.0 each year, and Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) conjoint degrees combinations which require a GPA of 5.0 each year.

7 A student who has been discontinued from a conjoint degrees combination due to the continuation requirement specified in Regulation 6 may apply for readmission. To be eligible for readmission:

a the student must have achieved a GPA of at least 3.5, 4.0 for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) or 5.0 for the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours), in the most recent 120 points of study towards one or more of the component degrees following the student’s discontinuation. In exceptional circumstances the required grade point average may be waived by Senate or its representative.

b if a student has fewer than 120 points to complete then they may apply for readmission immediately.

c neither of the component degrees can have been awarded.

8 A student must state the reasons for re-admission, and include evidence where applicable. Where such application is made, the Deans or nominees of the respective faculties may:

a permit the student to be readmitted to the conjoint degrees combination

b permit the student to be readmitted under specific conditions

c decline readmission.

9 A student may be readmitted to a conjoint degrees combination once, other than in exceptional circumstances approved by Senate or its representative.

Approval

10 As a condition of approval, Senate or its representative may require that a student include in a conjoint programme:

a a specified major subject or specialisation

b specified elective courses.

Duration and Total Points Requirements

11 The duration of a conjoint degrees combination is determined by the sum of the points required for each of the component degrees as set out in the Schedule of Requirements in these regulations.

General Education

12 a A student is exempted from the requirement to pass a course offered in the General Education Schedule who has:

either

(i) completed an undergraduate degree at a tertiary institution

or

(ii) commenced study for this degree at a tertiary institution before 1 January 2006.

b A student who has been admitted to either component degree of a conjoint degree combination who has completed 120 points or more of degree-level study at another tertiary institution is exempted from the General Education requirement for the conjoint degree.

c A student who has been exempted from the General Education requirement must substitute 15 points from courses available for the component degrees.

d A student who has been exempted from the General Education requirement is nonetheless required to complete the Academic Integrity course as specified in the Enrolment and Programme Regulations, Academic Integrity, of the University Calendar.

Suspension

13 A student may in any year totally suspend study for both component degrees of a conjoint degrees combination.

Additional Component Degrees/Diplomas

14 a If a student has satisfied the requirements of one (but not both) of the component degrees and would be eligible to have that degree conferred, the relevant Dean may approve the suspension of enrolment for the conjoint degree to allow the student to enrol for a relevant honours or Masters degree or diploma. In that case the total number of points passed must satisfy the regulations specified for that programme.

b With the approval of the relevant Deans, a student who suspends conjoint study to pursue a graduate programme may complete the conjoint degrees combination provided they have not graduated with the completed component degree in the meantime.

Graduation

15 A student must graduate in all components of the conjoint degrees combination in one or more ceremonies in the same graduation period.

Note: Graduation in one component of the conjoint degrees combination constitutes a discontinuation of the conjoint degrees.

Variations

16 In exceptional circumstances Senate or its representative may approve a personal programme which does not conform to these regulations.

Commencement

17 These regulations came into force on 1 January 2019. The 2006 regulations for the Conjoint Degrees were thereby repealed.

The specific requirements for each conjoint degree combination can be found under its respective Schedule.
