Failing a teach-out subject
If I fail a subject that is being taught out, how will I make up for it?
If a student fails a compulsory subject then the subject will need to be repeated. Although the exact subject may no longer be taught, the University is committed to ensuring students have a range of elective options to meet their needs, and in some courses their choice of electives will be increasing.
If a subject is being taught out, students will be able to take a recommended alternative, either one specified by a teaching department or one negotiated with the student on a one-on-one basis.
Nevertheless, some subjects will no longer be offered in future years and students should plan their course with this in mind.
Should a student fail, they should make sure that they discuss their future study plan by speaking with a Stop 1 staff member.
For degrees with professional admission requirements such as Law, alternative arrangements will be offered each semester to accommodate students who have failed a subject being offered for the final time that is required for the purpose of admission to legal practice.
