    The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:

    1. Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
    2. Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
    3. Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
    4. Assessment must maintain academic standards.

    Progression from one year to the next in the MBBS is dependent on the student successfully completing an annual examination in which a full year’s learning is assessed.

    To successfully complete the annual examination the student must pass the end of year examination and have achieved a pass in all year level component courses (24 units). Where the student does not achieve a pass in all the year level component courses but has achieved a pass in the end of year exams and at least 18 units of the year level component courses, the student may progress to the next year of the MBBS program.

    If a student has not completed all required units of the previous year they must successfully complete an appropriate remedial course of the same or greater value as specified in the next academic year.

    A student may carry no more than 6 units of uncompleted courses at any time in the MBBS program.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy ( course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.
