Undergraduate Units in Postgraduate Degrees

Please note that this policy has not yet been revised or converted to the new format. This policy area is being re-formulated into the new Academic Policy Bank format.

Undergraduate units are not normally part of a postgraduate degree. However, in some programs of an interdisciplinary nature, the breadth of knowledge required by students can be most easily obtained by studying some undergraduate units. This may provide a basic understanding of different disciplinary areas or the acquisition of specific methodological skills. It also avoids extra staff workload in offering special postgraduate level units to fulfil these purposes.

In 72 point Masters programs a maximum of 12 points at level 3 may be included. A case would need to be made to the Education and Student Expereince Committee (ESEC) for inclusion of any units at lower levels.
