Definition of a Major Course Amendment

To assist you in deciding whether an amendment is a major or minor amendment, please refer to the checklist.

Course amendment process for implementation of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF)

Under the TEQSA Qualification Standard, the University's degrees and awards are required to be consistent with the qualification descriptors contained within the AQF by 1 January 2015. A number of courses will require amendments to admission requirements, learning outcomes, volume of learning and course structure to align with AQF requirements. In order to streamline this process, amendments may be submitted by faculties via a bulk approval process using the AQF-related course amendment template (26kb).

It is recommended that the bulk approval of any changes to courses be undertaken by Coursework Admissions and Programs Committee (CAPC) 1/14.  As such, faculties should email completed forms to no later than Monday, 20 January 2014.

Malaysian Qualifications Framework

At the Sunway campus, the Course Accreditation Business Rule must also be followed for new courses and major amendments to demonstrate compliance with the Malaysian Qualifications Framework (MQF): Complete Appendix A3 and Appendix C Templates. These are required to demonstrate compliance with the MQF.

Writing, editing and approval of text for AHEGS fields

New course proposals need to include a description of the award that will be printed on the AHEGS that students will receive at graduation. There are a number of resources available to assist course proposer with writing AHEGS statements.

Policy Compliance Checklists

The following forms may be of value to faculty proposers when considering whether aspects of their proposals coincide with the University's policies and procedures. Load planning items are included in the checklists in relation to OPQ's broader requirements.
