Students who are made an offer to either the single Bachelor of

pages 12, 13 and 14 regarding eligibility for the combined
degrees.

Students apply to SATAC for the double Education/Arts degree.

Withdrawing from topics and your Grade Point
Average
http://www.flinders.edu.au/enrolling/enrolment-and-
registration/amending-enrolment.cfm
If you decide not to continue with a topic, you should take note
of the critical dates on page 8.

If you withdraw before the HECS Census date for each semester,
you will not pay HECS for the topic and it will not appear on
your academic transcript. If you withdraw after the HECS Census
date but before 13 May (Semester 1 topics) or 7 October
(Semester 2), the topic will be recorded on your transcript as
"withdraw without failure" or WN. If you withdraw after that
date the topic will be recorded as "withdraw fail" or WF.

Having a topic recorded as WN rather than WF is most
important, as a WF grade will reduce your Grade Point Average
(GPA).

A GPA appears on your transcript for each year of study and as a
cumulative GPA at the bottom of your transcript. You might
consider your GPA as being similar to your Tertiary Entrance
Rank (TER) from Year 12. It reflects how well you have
performed throughout your degree.

Your GPA also is important if you decide to apply for admission
into another course or, after completing the BA, a graduate
entry course. As you will be competing with other students for
entry into these courses, your success in gaining admission will
be determined by how well you have performed in your BA, i.e.
whether you have a high GPA.

The GPA is the average of the grades you achieve, taking into
account topic unit values, and the formula is quite simple.

Each topic is given a value based on your performance, ranging
from 7 for a High Distinction to 0 for Fail. This figure is then
multiplied by the topic‟s unit value to get a total for that topic;
for example, a High Distinction in a 6 unit topic comes to 42. By
working out this figure for all your topics, adding them together
then dividing the total by the total number of units taken in
these topics, you get the GPA (which is calculated to two
decimal places).

The following values are used: High Distinction, 7; Distinction,
6; Credit, 5; Pass, 4; Fail, 0; Withdraw Fail, 0. Non Graded Pass
(like WN) is not included in GPA calculations.

Leave of Absence
http://www.flinders.edu.au/enrolling/enrolment-and-
registration/leave-from-study.cfm
Once you have completed the requirements of one topic in your
degree, the University expects you to continue to be an enrolled
student pursuing the degree. If you are not enrolled in the BA
for two consecutive semesters in an academic year (e.g.
Semester 1 and Semester 2) you will be deemed to be Absent
Without Leave (AWOL). Therefore, if you will not be enrolling
for two consecutive semesters, you must apply for Leave of
Absence from the program by lodging a request via email to
enrolment.services@flinders.edu.au in order to retain your place
in the Bachelor of Arts.

Program advice and enrolment
The advice which follows is not intended to take you step-by-
step through the entire enrolment process. Please refer to
enrolment information provided to you by the University. This
section provides a brief guide as to how to begin the process of
academic choice.

Your enrolment, and any later amendments to it, should
conform to the BA structure. Program advice is usually held in
November each year for continuing students and January each
year for commencing students.

It is possible to amend your enrolment once the year has begun.
For example, you can withdraw from enrolment in topics
without any penalty before specified dates, and it may be
possible to switch in to alternative topics before specified
dates. Obviously it would be better to get your enrolment right
the first time, but you can use these amendment procedures –
within the specified dates and rules – if your initial choice turns
out to be unsatisfactory or you have other reasons for needing
to withdraw from a topic. You can withdraw and add topics to
you enrolment within the specified dates via the web
https://i.flinders.edu.au/portal/page/portal/ifdev/iflinders/log
in

The University‟s official dates, which set time limits on the
amendment process, are clearly set out on page 8. On page 10
you will find a list of designated Program Advisers for the BA,
who can advise you on your enrolment. While there is no
necessity to consult with a Program Adviser who happens to be
based in the academic school/department or area of study with
which you are most concerned, it probably makes good sense
first to seek out such a Program Adviser who may have more
specialised knowledge of your area.

As with any other aspect of your studies the BA Office in the
Social Sciences South Building, Room 252, will provide any
assistance it can.

Graduate Qualities
at Flinders
Flinders University aims to inspire its students to achieve at the highest possible level. Our degrees
are recognised and highly regarded internationally and we provide a learning environment which is
innovative, supportive and of high quality.

We expect our students to develop an intellectual and cultural curiosity, both within academic and
professional disciplines and across discipline boundaries. We expect them to develop the problem-solving
work-ready skills required in our dynamic and changing world. We expect them to demonstrate cultural
awareness, to develop a global perspective and to cultivate a respect and tolerance for others.

We are proud that so many Flinders graduates identify with, and can be distinguished by, these distinctive
academic, professional and cultural characteristics.

Flinders University has adopted seven Graduate Qualities. We aim to produce graduates of bachelor
degrees who:
•	   are knowledgeable
•	   can apply their knowledge
•	   communicate effectively
•	   can work independently
•	   are collaborative
•	   value ethical behaviour
•	   connect across boundaries

Within this context, each bachelor degree program aims to develop, along with more program-specific
professional competencies, the core qualities listed here. These expected graduate qualities shape the
more detailed educational aims and learning outcomes which are specified for each course and topic at
Flinders.
