    Majors or areas of specialisation

    A ‘major’ is a group or sequence of six related subjects selected from one subject area, or from associated areas of study.

    In some programs, majors require certain subjects as specified. The rules for majors may be waived from time to time by the Dean.

    A ‘double major’ is a group of twelve subjects in the undergraduate schedule, from one subject area or from associated areas of study.

    Recommendations about majors, double majors, or other subject groups, which may be of greatest interest or value to individuals, can be obtained from Program Advisors, or from academic staff teaching in subject areas of interest to the students.

    Subject credit point weighting

    Every subject offered is allocated a weighting which defines:

    (1) the credit the subject carries towards the total credit points required for award of a particular degree program and
    (2) the portion of a full time student workload (40 points per semester) occupied by that subject. In this handbook, ‘subject’ indicates a standard 10 credit-point subject, unless otherwise specified.
    Admission requirements

    The Faculty considers a range of factors in determining admission to undergraduate programs. All programs are subject to Bond University regulations applying to all undergraduate or postgraduate programs. Exception cases are noted in this Faculty Website and Handbook (like the English as an International Language Programs).

    The Faculty reserves the right to scrutinise each application to assess the appropriateness of a candidate for enrolment in a particular program, and to approve or refuse admission to any candidate. This will apply especially to candidates for places in postgraduate coursework programs, where the nature and standard of an individual’s prior formal studies or professional experience may be of the greatest importance in assessing likelihood of success in a particular program.

    Credit and exemption for previous study elsewhere

    Credit may be granted towards degree programs in the Faculty only for subjects formally completed at other approved tertiary educational institutions, or Faculties of Bond University. Each credit granted reduces the number of subjects required for the degree by one.

    Credit will be granted only where the subjects concerned are equivalent (in terms of subject area, subject level, standard of assessment, and credit point weighting) to subjects offered by this Faculty. APS accreditation requirements prevent the granting of credits towards the Postgraduate Diploma of Psychology or Psychology Honours programs for subjects completed at other institutions.

    Credit granted may be for specified Humanities and Social Sciences subjects and majors, or for unspecified subjects or majors.

    For any degree program, like an Associate Degree which is a component part of another program, all work completed for that first program may be credited toward the more substantial award.
    Exemption (as opposed to credit) from core course requirements, normal subject Prerequisites and other rules may be granted on the basis of prior formal study, professional experience, or personal skills and experience. An exemption must be replaced by another subject.

    Each application for credit must be supported by the following:

        * A certified copy of transcript or other formal record of results achieved in subjects for which credit is claimed;
        * Details for relevant handbooks or subject and course descriptions sufficient to permit an assessment by the Faculty of the suitability of each subject.

    Each application for credit or exemption must be submitted in writing with supporting documentation.

    It is the responsibility of each applicant, at his or her own cost, to provide all documentation required for consideration of an application for credit. Applications for credit and exemptions must be submitted to the Faculty Services Office, with documentation, no later than the end of the first semester of enrolment unless there are exceptional circumstances as approved by the Dean.
    Changes and variations to students programs

    The Dean will be responsible for approving credit and exemptions, and variations and changes to student programs.

    Honours degree programs

    Bachelor Honours degree programs are offered in the Bachelor of Social Sciences (Psychology). This Honours program comprises two full-time semesters (80 credit points of coursework and thesis subjects). To be admitted to Honours, students must have completed the requirements for the appropriate Bachelor’s degree, normally with a grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or better, based on:

    4 = High Distinction
    3 = Distinction

    1 = Pass
