Why do I still need to register in classes if I am studying externally?

Question:

Why do I still need to register in classes if I am studying externally?

Answer:

External units may sometimes include an on-campus session in the unit requirements. An on-campus session is typically a lecture, tutorial or block practical session held on campus.

 

Most on-campus sessions are compulsory, as many units have a participation component which must be satisfied in order to obtain a pass grade. This information should be available in the unit guide.

 

You can search for a unit in the University handbook to determine if a unit with an external offering requires compulsory on-campus sessions.
