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).
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): http://www.monash.edu.my/Planning/Policy/BusinessRules/Rule_for_Campus_Course_Accreditation.html. 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
