A. Complementary study.

  1. Students enrolled in a Monash course that is managed by the Faculty of Arts, or who are enrolled into a double degree and who wish to take complementary study for the Arts-owned component of their course, must apply using the form mandated by the University.
    1. Please also note the relevant enrolment dates and further details as provided on the University’s webpage.
  2. Students are also responsible for applying to the host institution where they wish to undertake their complementary enrolment.
    1. The Faculty of Arts does not apply to a host institution on a student’s behalf, however if the host requires Arts approval on any of its own forms, students may request for this to be done so at the discretion of the Faculty of Arts and the Dean (or delegate).
  3. Where a student wishes to count units or credit from complementary study towards their major, minor, course specialisation, or graduate coursework degree, a variation to study requirements must be obtained.
  4. Completion of a major or undergraduate specialisation in an Arts-owned Monash course requires that the student complete at least 18 points of third-year study at Monash.
  5. Students undertaking complementary study are enrolled into ACL-coded units. Students must present an official transcript from their host institution within six months of completion of their complementary study; the student will then have an SFR (Satisfied Faculty Requirements) recorded against all ACL-coded units that were completed at the host institution. This SFR grade does not count towards a student’s WAM or GPA.
  6. Complementary study is not available for honours students, or for research units as part of any undergraduate, honours, or graduate course.
  7. Students wishing to take complementary study are encouraged to seek course advice from the Faculty.
  8. Enrolment by Arts students in complementary studies is permitted at the discretion of the Faculty of Arts, and the Dean (or delegate).
  9. Enrolment at the host institution must be completed after enrolment has been approved by the Faculty of Arts. Students will not receive credit for units taken at another institution without prior approval.

Responsibility: Students; undergraduate coordinators; Faculty course advisors; Dean of the Faculty of Arts.

B. Cross-institutional study.

  1. Students from another tertiary institution who wish to enrol into a unit or units taught by the Faculty of Arts must apply using the form mandated by the University.
