Selection for limited places

Selection criteria for limited places shall be based on academic merit and suitability for the programme, which may include:

  • Selection criteria and processes as laid out in programme regulations
  • Enrolment or intended enrolment in a type of programme (e.g. a research programme)
  • Motivation and likelihood to pursue a career in a relevant profession for professional programmes
  • Additional skills relevant to success in a programme or paper (e.g. demonstrated poetry writing skills for a poetry writing paper)

Notwithstanding these criteria:

  • In cases where the timing of application makes assessment against other applicants impractical, the order of application may be used, with those completing their application first being given preference
  • For Summer School papers, applicants whose proposed enrolment would complete their degree may be given preference

Additional selection criteria for specific papers or programmes, as approved by the University Senate, are as follows:

OBGY 718 and 719 Timeliness of application (preference for earlier applications), in cases where academic merit and suitability for the course do not provide grounds for selecting between applicants
NAUT 101 Some positive weighting in selection for students who will not have the opportunity to do the paper in subsequent years, e.g. finalists
GENA 737 Selection to favour a mix of students from different health professions to support intended interprofessional teaching and learning outcomes
