Changes to Information

On occasion, it may be necessary to make changes to the course information that has been published on Canvas. Changes will normally be made before the first session of a course, although in exceptional circumstances some changes may be necessary after the course has commenced. If the changes may have a material impact on students, the faculty will notify the students by way of a Canvas announcement or an email to the class.

Student Responsibility

Students should have their Canvas announcements enabled and set to receive notifications when information is published, and when it is updated or amended.

Students are responsible for familiarising themselves with the course information (and details of any changes where applicable) as the information is published and ensuring they understand what is expected of them. Students must raise any issues or seek clarification from the faculty no later than two weeks before the first session of a course or before the next session when changes are made. The final deadline for students to drop an Elective Course or Tailored Core Course is a minimum of seven days before the course begins (not including the first day of the course).
