(1) This policy provides the basis for the allocation of credit-point values to units and the associated student workload hours assumed within a unit. This policy dates from the 1997 Uniform Credit Point Policy that standardised all UNE undergraduate courses as having 48 credit points as the normal annual full-time study load typically comprising eight 6 credit-point units or multiples of six, such as two 24 credit-point units. Since 1997, this policy has also been applied to coursework postgraduate courses and those higher degrees by research that are structured on a credit-point basis.
(2) This policy applies to all UNE undergraduate units excepting practicum, praxis and equivalent units, and units used for the recording of research study of PhD students.
(3) The following will apply:
(4) A credit point is an indicator of the amount of work required in a unit and represents a workload of approximately twenty-five hours per teaching period. This means that a six credit-point unit, for example, is estimated to require a total workload of approximately 150 hours.
