Language interviews and placement tests
Language subjects are organised in a progressive sequence (of units). Entry and exit points are determined by the student's background in the language, placement testing, prerequisites, or at the discretion of the language program. Students normally progress through the subjects in consecutive order. Mid-year entry is also possible into language subjects with even numbers, subject to appropriate prior experience and approval from the Convenor of the language program.
It is the responsibility of all prospective language students to read this information and enrol according to advice from academic staff based on the outcome of an interview and, where required, a placement test that determines the appropriate level of enrolment.
It is also important to note that Placement test results are provisional and academic staff have the right to re-enrol students in an alternative level of language study on the basis of academic performance in the first two weeks following enrolment. Students who do not follow the process outlined here and who enrol in an inappropriate language level will be moved to the appropriate language level as determined by the Program Convenor. Students who wish to dispute the level at which they have been placed must do so in writing to the Program Convenor who will provide a written response.
