The student should consider what Study Mode they wish to take the course as:

The student does not sit assessment and does not receive credit for the course.  This Study Mode requires permission from the Principal Supervisor and course lecturer only. Class-Only is sometimes called "Auditing".

(b)   “Classes & assessment excluding centrally arranged exam” - This permits the student to attend lectures and additional activities (e.g. labs, tutorials, etc.). The student can also undertake coursework assessment (no centrally-arranged exam) which may include essays, tutorial participation, oral presentations, practical, lab work etc. This Study Mode requires permission from the Principal Supervisor, course lecturer and the College Office; or,

(c) “Classes & assessment including centrally arranged exam” - This permits the student to attend lectures and additional activities (e.g. labs, tutorials, etc.).The student also takes all assessment including coursework and centrally arranged exams. This Study Mode requires permission from the Principal Supervisor, course lecturer and the College Office.
