- About Deakin
All courses of the University have structures which include the completion of a set number of units and may also include completion of core units or particular sequences of units. For many units of study there are prerequisite units, which must be completed before enrolment in a subsequent unit will be accepted.
The University will provide complete, accurate, consistent and comprehensive information regarding course rules and requirements via the university handbook and/or online repositories. Online repositories include the online handbook and StudentConnect which are both accessible through the Deakin website.
In all faculties and for all courses there are appointed Enrolment Officers who can assist with course planning and provide information on course requirements. These staff members can be contacted for enrolment advice by telephone, email or in person. Details of Enrolment Officers for each course will be available from the relevant faculty and through the Current Students website.
Students are required to use the functionality offered through StudentConnect to check their enrolment and personal details as recorded by the University. By using the course completion check available through StudentConnect, students can assess their academic progress against the specified enrolment rules for their course. This facility can also give an indication of additional units that must be completed in order to meet course requirements.
It is extremely important when planning enrolment details for each year, or when making any changes to enrolment, that students seek course advice from Enrolment Officers, the University Handbook or StudentConnect. Units selected for enrolment must be consistent with the requirements of the particular course in which the student is enrolled. In the event that students make enrolment choices that fail course and/or unit rules, such enrolments will become invalid.
Students will be notified of any invalid enrolment choices via an Invalid Unit Enrolment Notice. Students who receive such a notice are required to contact their Enrolment Officer within three days to amend their enrolment.
