All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
