Pre-requisites or Co-requisites

Pre-requisites: You must have completed all units in your course except this one and passed all those units on the first attempt. If you do not pass all prior units on the first attempt, you will not be eligible to enrol in this unit and therefore you must either enrol in 'Research Stream' units or 'Practicum Stream' units.

Anti-requisites: If you have completed any units from the 'Research Stream' or 'Practicum Stream' you cannot enrol in this unit.

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).
