Notes

(1)

Students who are eligible for Advanced Placement may register in a senior course. In the case of Language other than English courses students with Advanced Placement will be permitted to register in a senior level course after determination of their background qualifications for that course (interview, placement test, etc.). Students may also challenge a junior or senior course for credit via the Credit by Special Assessment route if they have appropriate qualifications and are eligible within the regulations.

(2)

Credit will be awarded for all five regional options offered at the higher level (HL), including Africa; Americas; East and South East Asia and Oceania; Europe (including Russia/USSR); and South Asia and the Middle East (including North Africa).

(3)

For students entering the Faculty of Engineering, transfer credit for the first (qualifying) year courses does not reduce the minimum load requirement of 37.0 units.

(4)

Students wishing to pursue credit by special assessment, please refer to 14.2.4 for information.

(5)

When students are instructed ‘not to take’ a specific course and a generic 100-level credit is granted, this credit may be used to meet the prerequisite for any higher level course requiring the specific course in question.
