Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

Offerings For Term 1 - 2022


Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Class and Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Student Evaluation


The format of the print ready learning guides needs to be reviewed as diagrams and text fonts are inconsistent which makes printing difficult. Some weblinks in the learning guides are broken.


The format of the print ready learning guides will be reviewed and amended as needed to ensure they print correctly. All embedded weblinks will be checked.

Feedback from Student Evaluation


It is sometimes necessary to move between various modules in Moodle. It is difficult to go between modules in the current Moodle format.


The Moodle layout is changing to a tile format. It is hoped that the new format will make navigating between blocks easier.

Feedback from Student Evaluation


The learning materials and assessments are heavily focussed on the resources sector. Students from other industries found the assessments difficult to understand.


The resources and assignment questions will be reviewed and revised to increase the relevance to a range of industry sectors.

Feedback from Student Evaluation


Student evaluations for assessment feedback have fallen.


Marking criteria sheets for all assessments will be reviewed.

Unit Learning Outcomes
