STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

Ensure you are aware of enrolment dates/withdrawal dates/non-fail dates and take action to amend enrolment if necessary BEFORE these dates. Many Law units in later years are taught in outside ‘normal’ Sem 1 and 2 periods, so we advertise all relevant dates for amending your enrolment. Please take note!!!

Read all correspondence carefully and respond by required dates:

  • Read student emails 3-4 times per week

  • Ensure postal address is correct and up to date.

    Retain enrolment records and documentation (including WES

    transaction numbers).


Student responsibilities continued l.jpg
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES (continued)

  • Attend classes! The LLB and related double degrees are not distance education courses.

  • Be aware of examination period and attend examinations! DO NOT schedule holidays, clerkships, social events during the examination periods. These are NOT grounds for deferred examinations.

  • Inform Student Services staff immediately of problems that may impact your enrolment or ability to study – the earlier we are advised the more we will be able to do to help.
