Monash University Policy Bank

Academic Programs Offered from Multiple Campuses Policy

Purpose

To set out requirements for the provision of multi-campus coursework programs.

Scope

This policy applies to all courses and units offered from more than one campus and to courses and units that are offered concurrently in both on campus and off campus mode. For the purposes of this policy, off campus mode is treated as a campus.

Assessment aspects of this policy also apply to Monash courses and units conducted through Open Universities Australia.

Policy Statement

Courses that are offered from several campuses
Where a course is offered from more than one campus, a course management group, with representation from all campuses involved in offering the course and its relevant academic units, will oversee the delivery of the course, as well as any campus specific variations. The course management group will be responsible for ensuring the equivalence of academic standards and learning requirements across campuses.

Units that are offered from more than one campus
Where a unit is offered from more than one campus, a unit management group comprising key teaching staff from all locations involved in offering the unit will ensure that assessment tasks and standards are equivalent across all locations.
