Admission requirements & prerequisites
Minimum University entry requirements apply. Applicants may have to attend an interview, take certain tests, and take part in other selected activities. For example, in some specialist areas in the secondary streams, such as English, Speech and Drama, students have to undergo specific evaluation processes, which are designed to ensure, as far as possible, that applicants are able to complete the course.

* English, Speech and Drama

In addition to these specialist secondary programs there are several others as detailed in the accompanying schedules which are offered to students who began prior to 1994.

Course structure

* Liberal Studies within which there is a major study
* Education Studies

A student who completes the first three years of the course with sufficient merit may be permitted to continue into the fourth year as an Honours candidate. Such a student will complete many of the normal coursework requirements of the degree together with an Honours Dissertation.
