    Workload

    The information below is provided as a guide to assist students in engaging appropriately with the course requirements.



    WORKLOAD                                       TOTAL HOURS
     
    Individual lessons 12 x 1 hour per week = 12 hours per semester

    Forums 12 x 2 hours per week  =              24 hours per semester

    Ensembles 12 x 3 hours per week      =     36 hours per semester

    Research 12 x 6 hours per week    =         72 hours per semester

    Practice 12 x 14 hours per week   =        168 hours per semester

     Total: 312 hours per semester
    Learning Activities Summary
    A developmental curve in performance skills is expected through the agency of individual practice under direction received from the student’s individual teacher in one-to-one teaching mode. Ensemble performance and rehearsal under supervision is designed to achieve a similar result in this aspect of performance. Forums are designed to encourage effective public performance and provide regular feedback from peers and staff following students’ performances. Students’ critical faculties are also developed as they audit other performances in Forums.
    Small Group Discovery Experience
    The schedule of 1:1 individual lessons enables technical and musical issues to be explored, and short-term and long-term goals to be designed in order to target individual needs.
  • Assessment

    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.

  • 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 (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) 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.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
