Qualification Regulations

Part I

These regulations are to be read in conjunction with all other Statutes and Regulations of the University including General Regulations for Undergraduate Degrees, Undergraduate Diplomas, Undergraduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas, and Graduate Certificates.

Part II

Admission

1. Admission to the Degree of Bachelor of Science requires that the candidate will meet the University admission requirements as specified.

Qualification Requirements

2. Candidates for the Degree of Bachelor of Science shall follow a flexible programme of study, which shall consist of courses totalling at least 360 credits, comprising:

(a) not more than 165 credits at 100 level;

(b) at least 75 credits at 300 level; and including:

(c) a course in communication as per Schedule A to the Degree;

(d) a quantitative course from the 160 or 161 course prefixes;

(e) at least 225 credits from Schedules B and C to the Degree;

(f) at least one course from each of at least four disciplines (as determined by prefix) corresponding to Bachelor of Science specialisations, excluding courses from Schedule A;

(g) completion of at least one major;

(h) attending block courses, Contact Workshops, field trips, workshops, tutorials and laboratories as required.

3. Notwithstanding Regulation 2(e), and at the discretion of Academic Board, students exiting the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours, Bachelor of Food Technology with Honours, Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science, and Bachelor of Veterinary Science may have a personal programme variation approved in excess of stated limits, to meet the requirements of the BSc through substitution of courses from the schedules to those degrees.

Specialisations

4. Candidates must complete a major by passing the requirements for a major as specified in Schedule B to the Degree .

5. Candidates may complete a double major by meeting the requirements of both majors as specified in Schedule B to the Degree. A double major must include at least 195 credits above 100 level, of which at least 105 credits must be at 300 level, from the combined set of majoring requirements for the two majors.

6. Approved majors available are: Agricultural Science, Animal Science, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Data Science, Earth Science, Ecology, Environmental Science, Exercise and Sport Science, Genetics, Geography, Human Nutrition, Logistics and Supply Chain Management*, Marine Ecology, Mathematics, Microbiology, Nanoscience*, Physics, Physiology, Plant Science, Psychology, Statistics, and Zoology.

*No new enrolments.

7. Candidates may include up to two minors in the Degree of Bachelor of Science.

(a) A minor must include at least 60 credits, including at least 45 credits above 100 level, of which at least 15 credits must be at 300 level.

(b) The requirements for each minor are set out in Schedule B to the Degree.

(c) The minor(s) must be in a different subject area from the major(s).

(d) Minors may be included from any undergraduate degree within the University for which recognised minors are specified.

(e) Where the minor is from another undergraduate degree the regulations of that programme for the minor will apply.

(f) No course may be credited to both a major and a minor, or to more than one minor, except at 100 level, where a course from one subject is required as a prerequisite or co-requisite for a course from the other subject. At least 45 credits above 100 level for each minor must be discrete to that minor.

(g) No more than 120 credits from outside the BSc schedules may be credited to a minor(s).

8. Minors available are: Animal Science, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Biostatistics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Data Science, Earth Science, Ecology, Environmental Science, Equine, Exercise and Sport Science, Genetics, Geography, Horticulture, Human Nutrition, Logistics and Supply Chain Management*, Marine Ecology, Mathematics, Microbiology, Nanoscience*, Physics, Physiology, Plant Biology, Psychology, Statistics, and Zoology.

*No new enrolments.

Academic Requirements

9. In any course that involves practical work, satisfactory performance in the practical work is necessary for a pass to be obtained in the course. A pass will only be awarded where practical work has been completed to the satisfaction of the Academic Board in accordance with the guidelines governing the practical work requirements.

Student Progression

10. Candidates may not enrol in a 200-level Bachelor of Science course in their first 90 credits of study towards the Bachelor of Science unless such enrolment has been approved by Academic Board or their delegate.

Completion Requirements

11. The timeframes for completion as outlined in the General Regulations for Undergraduate Degrees, Undergraduate Diplomas, Undergraduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas and Graduate Certificates will apply.

12. Candidates may be graduated when they meet the Admission, Qualification, and Academic requirements within the prescribed timeframes; candidates who do not meet the requirements for graduation may, subject to the approval of Academic Board, be awarded the Certificate in Science and Technology or Diploma in Science and Technology should they meet the relevant Qualification requirements.

Unsatisfactory Academic Progress

13. The general Unsatisfactory Academic Progress regulations will apply.
